A WOMAN was charged last week with the mur­der of her three-year-old daugh­ter last Fe­bru­ary in Shankill.

Emer Can­non (42) ap­peared at a spe­cial sit­ting of Bray District Court last Wed­nes­day. She was charged with the mur­der of her daugh­ter Zoe Whit­ford fol­low­ing an in­ci­dent at their Aubrey Grove home, al­leged to have oc­curred on Fe­bru­ary 10. Can­non was re­manded in cus­tody and the mat­ter was ad­journed to Bray District Court this week. She made no ap­pli­ca­tion for bail.

Zoe died in hos­pi­tal on Tues­day, Fe­bru­ary 13, when her life sup­port ma­chine was turned off.
