MORE advice is being sought from doctors before the sentencing of a young Wrexham man who admitted killing his grandmother.

Kyle David Edward Ellis, of New Hall Road in Ruabon, was initially due up for sentence at Mold Crown Court on Thursday, having previously admitted an offence of manslaughter.

The plea came after the death of his grandmother Susan Hannaby on February 11, 2021, at New Hall Road.

But this week's planned sentencing of the 26-year-old did not go ahead, with a mention hearing concluding additional views need to be sought from doctors as to how the defendant should be dealt with.

Judge Rhys Rowlands told the court that if, by the time of the next hearing, a hospital order is not put forward at the most appropriate route, he will expect notes from the prosecution and defence advocates in the case as to where they say the offence sits in the sentencing guidelines.

Ellis - who attended Thursday's hearing via video link from prison - will next appear at the court on June 17, when the next stages will be made clear.
