A woman will appear in court today charged with murdering a seven-year-old girl who died from a head injury.

Kay-Ann Morris, 23, was charged by Nottinghamshire Police yesterday following an investigation into the death of the child, who has yet to be formally identified.

The girl's body was found at a house in Beckhampton Road, Bestwood Park, Nottingham, at around 5.10am on Thursday after concerns were raised for her welfare.

Morris, of Beckhampton Road, is due before Nottingham Magistrates Court this morning.

A post-mortem examination established the preliminary cause of the girl's death as a head injury.

Officers investigating the death also arrested a 47-year-old man, who has been released without charge.
