Donovan Miller admits to beating his grandmother Phyllis Grant to death and having intercourse with her corpse

A man has admitted to killing his grandmother and having sex with her corpse.

Donovan Miller, 31, killed 76-year-old Phyllis Grant by attacking her with a vase in her own home in Plaistow, east London.

The attack took place on March 25, 2021.

Police arrived at the scene after receiving a call and they declared Grant dead.

Miller was arrested and charged with murder the next day but has now pleaded guilty to manslaughter by diminished responsibility, and a third charge of sexual penetration of a corpse.

Prosecutor Caroline Carberry QC said the pleas were acceptable in light of the conclusions of three psychiatrists.

Judge Anthony Leonard QC adjourned sentencing until Monday, March 28.
