Police name baby who died after father charged with causing her grievous bodily harm
Caragh Walsh died in hospital after sustaining severe head injuries
A three-month-old baby girl, who died after her father was charged with causing her grievous bodily harm, has been named by police in Northern Ireland.
Caragh Walsh had been critically ill since she was admitted to Belfast’s Royal Victoria Hospital on Wednesday night.
Police confirmed that the infant, of Glasvey Drive in Twinbrook in West Belfast, had sustained severe head injures and died on Friday night.
A post-mortem medical examination is due to take place, the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said.
Her 23-year-old father appeared before a judge in Craigavon Magistrates' Court in Co Armagh on Friday morning.
The accused has not been named for legal reasons but a judge allowed the identity of the baby to be released.
Caragh died just hours after the court hearing.
A spokesman from the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said: "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."
