The distraught father of a girl stabbed to death in Doncaster has had a laptop computer containing "irreplaceable" photos of her stolen.

Anthony Kearney, whose 13-year-old daughter Casey-Lyanne died on Valentine's Day, appealed for the computer to be returned.

South Yorkshire Police said Mr Kearney's home in Edenthorpe, Doncaster, was burgled on Thursday.

Mr Kearney said: "Losing Casey has been so painful."

'No more pictures'

He added: "Photos and videos hold all the precious memories of my beautiful daughter and I desperately want these back."

"Photographs hold an incredible sentimental value to anyone, these pictures even more so as I will never be able to take any more of Casey."

Police said the Sony VAIO laptop was taken alongside a number of other items sometime between 07:45 and 12:35 GMT on Thursday.

Detective Constable Scott Barley, who is investigating the burglary, said: "I would urge anyone who has any information to please come forward to assist with the investigation and the return of the laptop to Mr Kearney."

Hannah Bonser, 26, of Cusworth House, Doncaster, has been charged with Casey-Lyanne's murder and possession of two knives.

She is in custody and due to appear at Sheffield Crown Court on 10 May.
