An inquest is due to open into the death of a seven-year-old Birmingham girl who died after allegedly being starved at her home.
Khyra Ishaq was pronounced dead after being taken to hospital from her mother's home in Handsworth in the early hours of May 17. Her mother Angela Gordon, 33, and her partner Junaid Abuhamza, 29, both appeared in court via videolink on May 28, accused of "causing or allowing" her death.
The pair, who lived together with Khyra and her siblings in Leyton Road, Handsworth, appeared at Birmingham Crown Court charged with the offence contrary to section five of the 2004 Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Act.
They are formally accused of committing the offence between May 9 and the date of Khyra's death, May 17.
The Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board launched a serious case review into the youngster's death.
Such an inquiry is launched when abuse or neglect is known or suspected to be a factor in a child's death, Birmingham City Council said.
Khyra's inquest will open at Birmingham Coroner's Court.
