A boy, who was aged 12 at the time of the incident but has since turned 13, was initially charged with Marcia's murder. 

Prosecutors subsequently accepted a guilty plea to an alternative charge of causing death by dangerous driving, during a Sheffield Crown Court hearing held on October 3, 2023.

The boy was a looked-after child, in the care of Marcia, and her family, at the time of the fatal incident.
