A TEENAGER who admitted killing seven-year-old Katie Rough will not be sentenced on Thursday after the hearing was re-scheduled for the autumn.

The 16-year-old had been expected to be sentenced after she admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility at Leeds Crown Court on July 3.

The girl, who cannot be named for leagal reasons, will now learn her fate during a hearing in early September.

Last month, the court heard the seven-year-old was killed in a field off Alness Drive, Woodthorpe.
