Stewart Greene changed his plea following a legal ruling by the trial judge and admitted to the murder of Alex Robinson on December 23, 2014.

The 65-year-old previously denied murder but confessed to drowning the nine-year-old boy in court on Tuesday, November 24.

The jury was also told that Greene was discharged from the Peter Hodgkinson Centre without the knowledge of his consultant psychiatrist and without any care plan.
