Millionaire antiques dealer admits strangling 7-year-old daughter
A wealthy antiques dealer accused of strangling his seven-year-old daughter with a dressing gown belt has pleaded guilty to murder. Robert Peters, 56, throttled his daughter Sophia while alone with her at his £1 million family home in Wimbledon, south west London, last November. Afterwards, he called 999 to report what he had done and the child was rushed to hospital but died the following day. He had initially admitted manslaughter but denied murder, saying he was depressed and hearing voices at the time.
