An Auckland man has appeared in the Manukau District Court
this morning charged with the murder of a baby girl.
The five-month-old died on Thursday in Pukekohe after
suffering a fractured skull and broken leg.
The 24-year-old man accused of murdering the child was known
to the victim.
He did not enter a plea.
He has been granted interim name suppression and was remanded
in custody until next week where he will reappear in the High
Court at Auckland.
The victim's name has also been suppressed.
