Constance Marten and Mark Gordon charged with gross negligence manslaughter of baby

Runaway couple Constance Marten and Mark Gordon have been charged with the manslaughter of their baby.

Barry Hughes, chief crown prosecutor for CPS London North, said the CPS had authorised the Metropolitan Police to charge the pair after the body of the baby was found in woodland on Wednesday.

“Constance Marten, aged 35, and Mark Gordon, aged 48, have also been charged with concealing the birth of a child and perverting the course of justice. These charges arise from their arrest on Monday as a result of a lengthy police investigation to establish their whereabouts and that of their baby.

“The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against Constance Marten and Mark Gordon are active and that they have the right to a fair trial.”

The pair will appear at Brighton Magistrates’ Court on Friday.

An infant’s remains were found on Wednesday after a major two-day search operation in Sussex.

Marten, 35, and Gordon, 48, were arrested at Stanmer Villas in Brighton on Monday after avoiding the attention of police for seven weeks.
