PC Wayne Couzens has pleaded guilty to kidnapping and rape of Sarah Everard.

He has also "accepted responsibility" for her death but there's nothing about a murder/manslaughter charge in the articles I've seen so far. According to a reporter,
The court at the Old Bailey heard Wayne Couzens accepts responsibility for Sarah Everard’s killing, but was not asked to enter a plea to a charge of murder.
I don't understand why and I can't find any answers so far so if anyone knows what's going on please explain!
According to the interwebs
The murder charge wasn't put to Wayne Couzens today because the defence team are awaiting medical reports they have commissioned. Originally the plea date was set for July with the provisional trial due in October

Thank you. That tweet hadn't been written when I posted and I hadn't looked again.
it's okay to say "I don't know"

Reporting has been limited to the bare bones to reduce the chance of "a substantial risk of prejudice to the administration of justice"

My avatar was a scientific result that was later found to be 'mistaken' - I rarely claim to be 100% correct
ETA 5/8/20: I've been advised that the result was correct, it was the initial interpretation that needed to be withdrawn
Meta? I'd say so!

A cyclist who confronted a man after he shouted lewd comments out of his car at her has spoken of the barrage of daily harassment faced by women.Nanw Beard was cycling in Cardiff when the driver pulled up alongside her and said her "backside was going to cause an accident".

The 30-year-old said just hours earlier another man said he wanted to have sex with her while she was out on her bike.

And f.ck you to the driver who nearly ran me over on a zebra crossing yesterday and then the (male) passenger shouted a load of abuse at me.
