American Cameron Brown, 47, is accused of killing four-year-old Lauren Sarene Key because he didnt want to pay his British-born wife monthly maintenance equivalent to 605. Brown was tried three years ago, but a mistrial was declared after a jury couldnt agree on the severity of the crime. Deputy District Attorney Craig Hum told a Los Angeles court yesterday that Brown killed Lauren in November 2000 by throwing her off Inspiration Point in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. He added: This man picked up Lauren, whom he fathered but was never a father to, and threw her off a cliff into the water below. But defence lawyer Pat Harris argued it was an accident and portrayed Brown as a loving dad who showered her with presents. Harris added that Brown filed court documents seeking more visits with Lauren two weeks before her death. The case continues.

Lessons on TV if flu shuts down schoolsUNPRECEDENTED measures to keep the education system going if the swine flu pandemic shuts Britains 25,000 primary schools are being considered by the Government. The Cabinets crisis planning committee is looking at forcing the BBC to clear its schedules to broad- cast education programmes. It comes as the House of Lords today warned of significant con- cerns over the Governments handling of the swine flu crisis, in particular its decision to delay the launch of a flu helpline designed to ease pressure on GPs. On the education front, another option is using home teaching software at primary schools. This would rely on broadband, allowing teachers to give lessons remotely. The software is in place in about 450 schools and could be rolled out in time for the start of term. The emphasis will be on primary schools as most secondary schools already have sophisticated IT systems. So far the chief medical officer for England, Sir Liam Donaldson, has said school closures are unlikely. Under a clause in the BBCs oper- ating agreement, ministers have the legal right to force it to broadcast or distribute any announcement or other programme. One source said: Taking control of our schedule would be tantamount to taking control of the BBC. The Department For Schools is expecting schools to open normally in September.
