A 38-year-old woman accused of murdering an infant 10 years ago has been granted bail by a crown court judge.
Katie Tidmarsh is accused of killing one-year-old Ruby Thompson after the girl became unwell at her home address in Leicester on 11 August 2012, Leicestershire police said.
The force said Ruby was taken to hospital but died two days later.
Tidmarsh, of Station Road, Littlethorpe, Leicester, was charged with murder and appeared in front of the city’s crown and magistrates’ court on Monday. A provisional trial date was set for 6 March and no pleas were entered to the charges, a court spokesman said.
Police said two people were arrested in November 2012 as part of the investigation but were released with no further action.
The court spokesman said Tidmarsh was granted bail and a plea hearing has not yet been fixed.
