A Bury mother has been jailed for 12 years for killing her 4 year old daughter.

35 year old Dawn Makin pleaded guilty to manslaughter at an earlier hearing. 

She was jailed today at Preston Crown Court.

Officers found Chole Burke’s body at her house on Lea Mount Drive in February last year. She had multiple stab wounds.

Detective Chief Inspector Joanne Rawlinson said: "This is a very tragic case that has resulted in a young girl losing her life and our thoughts remain with Chloe's family, who are understandably still very upset by what happened."
