https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6467459/Father-20-repeatedly-assaulted-three-week-old-baby-daughter-Mikayla-killed-her.htmlA father accused of killing his 23-day-old daughter following alleged assaults has appeared in court.
Mikayla Haining died on June 8 last year in a flat in Inverness and her father, 20-year-old Thomas Haining, appeared in the dock at the High Court in Glasgow yesterday.
He is charged with repeatedly inflicting blunt force trauma to her head and body 'by means to the prosecutor unknown' in the Hilton area of the city, resulting in her death.
It is alleged he assaulted Mikayla repeatedly from the day she was born to the day she died and that she was so severely injured she died.
He is accused of murdering the baby at her home last year, which he denies.
