A man accused of killing his mother in Telford last year has pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

Robert Orrey of Burnell Road in Admaston was charged with the murder of 58-year-old Claire Orrey, who was killed at the same address on Sunday 30 July, 2023.

The 31-year-old denied murder but pleaded guilty to manslaughter at Stafford Crown Court today.

Detective Superintendent Tony Garner, who is the Senior Investigating Officer for the incident, said: “I am pleased for the family that there has been a guilty plea today and hope it helps them with their grieving process.

“It’s a very tragic case and it’s important we continue to remember Claire throughout proceedings, who family have described as a wonderful mother, wife, daughter, and grandma, who lit up the world of those who knew her.”
