The father of a five-year-old girl who died after the car she was in plunged into a river in Worcestershire has pleaded not guilty to her murder.
Christopher Grady, whose daughter Gabrielle died in hospital three days after she was rescued from the submerged vehicle in Evesham, also denied the attempted murder of his six-year-old son.
Grady, 42, of no fixed address, was subjected to shouts of abuse from the public gallery during a 15-minute hearing at Worcester Crown Court.
Grady, whose son, Ryan Grady, escaped from the car and was pulled from the water by police officers, will stand trial on February 28 next year.
He is formally accused of murdering his daughter, Gabrielle Grady, on February 14, the day the schoolgirl died at Birmingham Children's Hospital.
Grady, who spoke only to confirm his name and his pleas before being remanded in custody, is accused of attempting to murder Ryan on February 11.
Gabrielle, who was trapped under water for more than an hour, was airlifted to hospital on February 11 after being rescued from the car by police divers.
