Constance Marten trial shows photos of destroyed baby clothes
Constance Marten was spotted walking through a park carrying her lifeless baby in a sling more than a month after she and her lover went on the run, the Old Bailey has heard.
The wealthy aristocrat, 36, and Mark Gordon, 49, are accused of killing their newborn daughter Victoria after going ‘off grid’ in ‘obviously dangerous’ conditions in the middle of winter.
Witnesses have described encountering the trio as they criss-crossed the country, telling jurors how they were concerned for the infant who was seen dressed in nothing but a nappy or onesie.
On Wednesday, they were shown harrowing images of belongings recovered from the couple’s burnt-out car which sparked a nationwide search, including a baby’s blanket, sleeping bag, coat and mittens.
