A mother and father have appeared in court after being charged with murdering their 11-week-old daughter who died after suffering a brain bleed, fractures to her skull and ‘bite marks’.
Labourer Krunal Prajapati, 26, and Rinkalben Prajapati, 23, of Barnet, north-west London, appeared at the Old Bailey on Friday charged with murdering their daughter Hazel Prajapati.
An investigation was launched on September 16 after Hazel was admitted in an unresponsive condition to Northwick Park Hospital in north London with bleeding in her brain, fractures to her skull and bruising over her body.
Her parents, who are Indian nationals, had taken her there in a taxi from the home in Colindale.
Hazel was transferred to Great Ormond Street Hospital where she died on September 20.
A special post-mortem examination took place on September 26 and found bone fractures and bite marks on her left arm and thigh.
They gave the provisional cause of death as a head injury.
