Avon and Somerset Police have charged a 33-year-old Bristol man with the murder of his six-month-old daughter on Christmas Day.
Lee Parker, from Kingswood, is charged with murdering Aya Parker at an address in the Kingswood area of the city and will appear at Bristol Magistrates Court on Thursday 29 December.
