A woman charged with murdering her 14-month-old daughter has been granted bail after appearing in court for a second time.

Sadia Ahmed, 26, is accused of killing Inayah Ahmed on 17 April at the family home in Drumchapel, Glasgow.

She is accused of restricting the toddler's breathing and murdering her.

During a private appearance from custody at Glasgow Sheriff Court, Ms Ahmed made no plea or declaration and was granted bail by Sheriff Ian Miller.

She is expected to appear at the city's High Court at a later date.

Fourteen-month-old Inayah was reported to have become unwell at her home on 17 April.

She was taken by ambulance to the city's Royal Hospital for Sick Children where she died three days later.
