Woman charged with murder following death of two year-old girl

A woman has been charged with murder following the death of a two year-old girl in Stoke-on-Trent.

The body of Macy Hogan was found at an address on Packett Street in Fenton on Monday. 

A post mortem examination showed no clear cause of the child's death and further investigations will take place.

A 19 year-old woman will appear at North Staffordshire Justice Centre. 

Detective Inspector Dan Ison, Senior Investigating Officer, said: "I urge members of the public not to comment or speculate about this on social media and to remember that a little girl has tragically lost her life.  

Our thoughts are with the little girl’s family at this time. This is a very distressing incident and we are doing all we can to support those affected."
