A man accused of murdering his eight-year-old daughter has been remanded in custody.

Mylee Billingham was found with knife wounds at her father William's bungalow on 20 January.

Mr Billingham, 54, is also charged with making threats to kill Mylee's mother Tracey Taundry.

He appeared at Walsall Magistrates' Court and the case was adjourned until a further hearing at Wolverhampton Crown Court on Thursday.

Mr Billingham, of Valley View, Brownhills, spoke only to tell the clerk his name, date of birth and address and was not required to enter any pleas.

A two-minute hearing before three magistrates heard he was accused of committing both offences on 20 January.
