A father has been charged with manslaughter and conspiracy to supply ecstasy after his 17-year-old daughter died when she took drugs.
Jason Wilkes, 44, was arrested and charged after Chloe Wilkes' death on July 27 at their Tunbridge Way, Ashford home.
He has been remanded by Folkestone magistrates to appear at Canterbury Crown Court on August 18.
An inquest has opened into the popular teen's death.
It heard she felt unwell and collapsed and was rushed to the William Harvey Hospital where she died later that day.
Friends of the former North School pupil took to social media to express their shock and heartache.
Chloe left The North School last year.
Executive head teacher Jon Whitcombe said: “These are a desperately sad set of circumstances and our thoughts are with family and friends at this most difficult of times.”
The inquest will be resumed at a later date when more evidence will be heard and a conclusion will be reached as to the cause of death.
