Hayley MacFarlane, aged 39, appeared before Leeds Crown Court on Thursday, facing charges of murdering her five-month-old daughter, Evelyn MacFarlane. The tragic incident occurred on Wednesday, December 20, when Evelyn died in a hospital.

During the brief court hearing on December 28, MacFarlane, who resides on Carrington Street, Barnsley, appeared wearing a large khaki coat. She nodded only to confirm her name. She was remanded in custody and is scheduled to appear at the same court on January 25. Her trial has been set to commence on May 13.
