A man and a woman have appeared in court charged in connection with the death of a toddler in County Tyrone.
Two-year-old Ali Jayden Doyle died in hospital on Friday after suffering a serious head injury.
This afternoon, two people appeared in court via video link charged in connection with her death.
32-year Darren John Armstrong was charged with the child’s murder.
Investigators told the court they believe Mr Armstrong attacked the toddler.
The child’s mother, 24-year-old Jade Dempsey, originally from Dublin but now with an address at Sycamore Drive in Dungannon, is charged with perverting the course of justice and causing the death of a child.
The court heard that when emergency services arrived at the house, both accused said the baby’s one-year-old brother caused the injuries by striking her with a toy causing her to fall and hit her head on the hearth.
Paramedics called the account into question, based on the baby’s condition.
A pathologist said they had never seen such extensive injuries from an accidental fall before.
Both accused appeared before the court via video link and both were refused bail.
They are due to appear before the court again next month.
