Isobel Jones-Reilly death: Lecturer could face manslaughter charge
PUBLISHED August 2, 2012
Brian Dodgeon, 61, was away from the home he shared with partner Angela Hadjipateras when his 14-year-old daughter threw an unsupervised party where her friends found his Class A drugs.
Isobel, 15, died in April after taking the pills she found hidden in a wardrobe in Dodgeon's bedroom.
An inquest into her death has been adjourned for the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) to decide whether to bring charges of gross negligence manslaughter against him and his partner, Westminster Coroner's Court heard.
New evidence has been sent to the CPS that could lead to the pair facing an allegation of manslaughter.
Westminster Coroner Dr Fiona Wilcox said: "It is with an extremely heavy heart that I adjourn this case under the Coroners' rules because in my view it is likely that a charge of gross negligence/manslaughter could be brought against either Mr Dodgeon or Miss Hadjipateras.
