A man charged with murdering Tui travel agent Cassie Hayes at her workplace admits he killed her unlawfully, a court has heard.
The 28 year old died in hospital after being attacked at the store in Southport town centre on January 13.
Andrew Burke, 30, of Vincent Street, St Helens, appeared at Liverpool Crown Court via video link.
