A double killer who strangled his ex-partner and her baby son will be sentenced by a High Court judge today.
Wesley Williams, 29, pleaded guilty last week to the "shocking and senseless" murders of university graduate Yvonne Walsh and her seven-month-old son Harrison.
Police officers found the bodies of Ms Walsh and Harrison in their beds after forcing entry to their home in Chells Grove, Billesley, Birmingham, in June.
Post-mortem examinations found the 25-year-old mother and her son both died of pressure to the neck, but pathologists could not ascertain which was killed first.
After Williams admitted his guilt, West Midlands Police confirmed Harrison was found dead in his cot with the curtains of his room drawn.
Williams, of Chells Grove, is due to be sentenced by Mr Justice MacDuff at Birmingham Crown Court this afternoon.
