A MAN today pleaded guilty to urinating on a dying woman, covering her in shaving foam and throwing water over her as she lay helpless in the street.
Anthony Anderson admitted an offence of outraging public decency when he appeared before Hartlepool magistrates this morning.
The court heard how he threw a basin of water over Christine Lakinski, 50, covered her body in shaving foam and urinated on her while she lay collapsed in a doorway.
Lynne Dalton, prosecuting, said the incident was "videoed" by a friend.
The sick act happened in Jobson Street on July 26 when Christine was walking home from a friend's house.
Both the victim, who later died, and Anderson lived in Raby Road.
Mrs Dalton said that Anderson, 27, had thought Christine, was "a smack head or a drunk".
Her family have told the Mail that she was neither and a post mortem later revealed she was suffering from a chronic digestive condition.
The case was sent to Teesside Crown court where Anderson will be sentenced on Monday, October 22.
He was given unconditional bail until then.
A full version of this story will appear tomorrow in the Mail and on this website.
