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.

A post-mortem medical examination will investigate how Caragh Walsh, of Glasvey Drive in Twinbrook in West Belfast, died, the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said.

She was brought to Belfast's Royal Victoria Hospital on Wednesday night and remained in a critical condition. Last night police announced her death.

Her 23-year-old father appeared before a judge in Craigavon Magistrates' Court in Co Armagh yesterday morning.

The accused has not named for legal reasons but a judge allowed the identity of the baby to be released.

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."
