A father who killed his two-day-old baby girl because she wouldn’t stop crying has been found dead in his prison cell

According to Metro UK, he was found dead in his cell at HMP Leeds on Sunday and another inmate, John Westland, 28, has been charged with murder.

Westland was flanked by two police officers and a member of court escort staff as he was brought into the dock. He remained handcuffed throughout the brief hearing, speaking only to confirm his personal details.

A hearing will take place on Thursday at Leeds Crown Court.

Mr Smith said: “He said he was responsible for all of the injuries that she had suffered and he said that Luna had not settled down and he lost control.”
