Mother to go on trial accused of murdering four-year-old daugther

Written by Adam Hale

A mother is due to stand trial charged with the murder of her four-year-old daughter.

Carly Ann Harris, 38, is accused of killing Amelia Brooke Harris following an incident at a property in Trealaw, Rhondda, South Wales, on June 8 this year.

Harris denied one count of murder and an alternative count of manslaughter when she appeared at a pre-trial hearing in August.

South Wales Police released a statement on behalf of Amelia's family following the discovery of the youngster's body, in which she was described as a "loving daughter, sister, granddaughter, great granddaughter, niece and cousin".

The statement continued: "Amelia was beautiful both inside and out and was a fun-loving, caring and bubbly little girl.

"She was taken far too early from us and had her whole life ahead of her. Words cannot convey how we are feeling at this moment in time.

"We know our lives will never be the same again."

Harris, from Brithweunydd Road, Tonypandy, is due to appear at Newport Crown Court at 10am on Friday.
