Mum, 21, in court accused of causing or allowing death of eight-week-old baby daughter as lover faces murder charge

A MUM has appeared in court charged with causing or allowing the death of her eight-week-old baby daughter, who was allegedly murdered by her partner.

Tiffany Tate, 21, was held by cops last week over the death of baby Holly, who died from traumatic head injuries.

She appeared at Brighton Magistrates' Court today charged with causing or allowing the death of a child between July 14 and September 11, 2018.

Her case was linked to partner Michael Roe, 32, who is charged with murder between September 8 to 11 last year.

Tate was bailed to appear on September 26 at Lewes Crown Court for a plea and case management hearing alongside Roe.

Emergency crews were scrambled to the home in Crowborough, East Sussex, on September 10 last year after baby Holly began suffering breathing difficulties.

She was rushed to Pembury Hospital where sadly she couldn't be saved and was later pronounced dead.

A post-mortem revealed she died from a traumatic head injury.
