Update: Woman pleads guilty to manslaughter
A WOMAN who has killed a man had been arrested on the M6 three days earlier.
Swedish national Sabina Eriksson had ended up in Stoke-on-Trent after appearing before North Staffordshire Magistrates.
She admitted punching a police officer and trespassing on the M6 and was released by the court because she had spent three days in custody.
The 41-year-old then met Glenn Holinshead later that night and stabbed him to death 24 hours later.
Now his brothers are demanding answers about why Eriksson was not kept in custody by magistrates after running across the M6 two days earlier.
Today, Eriksson, from County Cork, Ireland, pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of Mr Hollinshead on the grounds of diminished responsibility at Nottingham Crown Court.
Mr Hollinshead, aged 54, of Duke Street, Fenton died on May 20, 2008 from a stab wound to the chest.
The case has been adjourned for sentencing.
