Man in court after burglary victim dies

A MORECAMBE man will appear in court for sentence after admitting a burglary where the elderly victim later died.

William Hartley, 23, of Stuart Avenue, Bare, will appear at Preston Crown Court on September 19.

This follows an incident on February 15 when Hartley broke in to a property on Wheatfield Court, Lancaster. The elderly female resident, Barbara Haynes, was in bed at the time and suffered a heart attack, dying eight weeks later.
