A 32-year-old woman appeared in court today charged with the murder of a young girl.
Claire Kennedy, whose address cannot be published for legal reasons, appeared at Solihull Magistrates' Court accused of killing the six-year-old earlier this week. Details of the case were not outlined during the brief hearing.
West Midlands Police said it was in connection with the death of the child at premises in Heathside Drive in the Kings Norton area of Birmingham on Wednesday.
No application for bail was made on behalf of the defendant and she was remanded in custody to appear at Birmingham Crown Court on May 18 for a preliminary hearing.
