Two cases are to be reviewed in the light of the Cannings judgment
but more may follow, according to the Criminal Cases Review
The review was launched earlier this year following the acquittal
of Angela Cannings in December 2003, who was cleared of killing her
babies after medical evidence from Sir Roy Meadow was discredited.
More than 250 cases stretching back a decade have been examined by
the attorney general’s office.
Correspondence about two cases, one that relates to the death of a
baby girl in 2000 and the second to the death of a baby boy in
2001, has been passed to the Criminal Cases Review Commission.
