Hardback. With Foreword by Michael Mansfield QC. Angela Canning was charged with murder after she and her husband Terry lost their third infant in 10yrs. She was convicted because of a medical theory that came to be known as 'Meadow's Law', which stated that 'one sudden infant death is a tragedy, two is suspicious and three is murder until proved otherwise'. Angela spent almost 2yrs in prison because she was unable to explain the deaths of her children. Branded a child murderer, she suffered physically and mentally within the prison walls and began to lose all hope, but with the support from a fellow cellmate who became a true friend, she refocused on what was important - being reunited with her husband and their daughter Jade. On Decmber 10, 2003 Angela was released unconditionally. Her conviction was quashed and her appeal made legal history. Yet, together with the joy of her freedom came the realisation that another fight and emotional ordeal had to be faced by the Cannings - the struggle to rebuild a normal family life that had been devastated and shattered to the core. Illus. in colour. 330pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in F. dw.
