Dead Baby Named After Father Charged With GBH

A three-month-old baby girl who died from critical injuries has been named.

Caragh Walsh of Twinbrook, was critically ill since she was taken to Belfast's Royal Victoria Hospital from a house in the west of the city on Wednesday evening.

On Friday night, police confirmed she had died.

Earlier in the day, her 23-year-old father appeared before a judge in Craigavon Magistrates' Court in Co Armagh charged with causing her grievous bodily harm.

The accused, who has not named for legal reasons, was bailed to appear in court again later this month.

A spokesman from the Police Service of Northern Ireland said on Friday night: "Following the court appearance of a 23-year-old man in Craigavon this morning detectives from Serious Crime Branch will be consulting with the Public Prosecution Service in relation to this case."

A post-mortem examination will take place in the coming days.
