The Judge Set the Trial Date
The Crown Prosecution Service ordered an expert report on the cause of the teenager’s death and Haines’s mental health.
Mrs. Sullivan had been out partying with friends just hours before her body was found in Mill Ponds, near a castle in the historic town of Pembroke, on December 17.
Despite on-scene resuscitation attempts, Lily was pronounced dead at 6:02 a.m. m., according to an investigation.
Prosecutor Michael Cray said at an earlier court hearing that Lily had been seen on CCTV at the Paddles nightclub and later walking around town, but she was later found dead.
He said that she and Haines did not know each other before the night of the alleged murder and told the court that Lily had been strangled.
In tribute to her death, Lily’s family said: “Lily was a kind and loving daughter who will be dearly missed by all.”
“The family is very grateful to all of Lily’s friends for their support.”
Flowers were also laid in the millpond next to historic Pembroke Castle in memory of supermarket worker Miss Sullivan.
Family friend Byron John added: “Lily was a sweet and charming young woman, well-spoken and very grown-up for her age.
She had her whole life ahead of her. She’s terrible, her mother Anna adored her, she was an only child and they were very close.
