A father has been charged with murdering his three-month-old daughter after she died from massive head injuries.

William Stephens, 24, was arrested after Paris Vince-Stephens was found at an address in Bristol.

Paramedics were called to a home in the Henbury area of the city last Friday after receiving reports of a baby girl with serious head injuries.

Avon and Somerset Police began an investigation into the cause of the injuries to Paris, who sadly died in Bristol Children’s Hospital on Monday morning.

Stephens, from Southmead, Bristol, was arrested and charged with murder and denied bail when he appeared at Bristol Crown Court on Thursday.

He was remanded in custody until a hearing on February 7.

Paris’ devastated mum Danahj Vince posted a picture of her tragic baby on Facebook, with the message “R.I.P sweetheart”.

Police spokesman Martin Dunscombe said: “On the evening of Friday, January 11, a girl aged three months was taken to Bristol Children’s Hospital with a serious head injury.

“Unfortunately the girl died in hospital early on Monday morning. When the girl was admitted we immediately began an investigation to establish how the injury was sustained.

“As a result of our inquiries, William Stephens, 24, from Bristol, was arrested and has been charged with murder.”

Stephens has not yet entered a plea.

    Another poor little soul has lost her life at the hands(it would appear) of a mindless, drug smoking thug….I thought it was quite hypocritical of the young mother writing RIP on a social network site, for the child she could clearly have protected, by not leaving her at the mercy of such an unpredictable ‘carer’.

    RIP on a social network site seems a pathetic and hypocritical way of marking the death of yet another poor defenceless child at the hands of an apparently mindless, drug-smoking thug!
