A woman has been charged with the murder of a seven-year-old girl in Nottingham.

Kay-Ann Morris, 23, has been remanded in custody to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.

The girl’s body was found at a house in Beckhampton Road, Bestwood Park, Nottingham, shortly after 5pm on Thursday after concerns were raised for her welfare.

A post-mortem examination established the cause of death as a head injury, a spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police confirmed.

Detectives also arrested a 47-year-old man in connection with the investigation but have since released him without charge.
