 A paranoid schizophrenic who stabbed a girl to death in a park on Mother's Day was smuggled into the UK in a lorry and was sectioned for attacking her own family - but was considered well enough to be released into the community.

Eltiona Skana, 30, slashed Emily Jones' neck with a craft knife as the seven-year-old called to her mother as she rode towards her in Queen's Park, Bolton. 

She pleaded guilty to manslaughter at Manchester Crown Court on the grounds of diminished responsibility but was charged with murder.

But on the seventh day of her trial, the jury was told the prosecution were discontinuing the case, with prosecutor Michael Brady QC revealing there was now no realistic prospect of a conviction. The judge subsequently asked the jury to formally return a not guilty verdict at crown court.
