A man has appeared at the Isle of Wight Magistrates’ Court accused of ‘unlawfully killing’ his mother.

Anthony Kimber, of Ryde Road, Seaview, is accused of manslaughter, failing to ensure Hazel Kimber received medical treatment or care in circumstances where there was a risk of death in breach of a duty of care, in August 2015.

The court was told Mr Kimber was initially interviewed following the death in 2015 and no further action was taken.

The court heard Mr Kimber was Hazel Kimber’s carer and was classed as a vulnerable adult.

Mr Kimber will now appear at the Isle of Wight Crown Court on March 11.
