The mother of a toddler who was found dead at home in 2013 has appeared in court charged with her murder.

Angela Whitworth, 43, is accused of killing 20-month-old Sarah Dahane on 16 May 2013 in Bicester, Oxfordshire.

The child was found dead after the family raised concerns about her welfare to police.

Ms Whitworth, who was arrested in Uganda on 9 March, was escorted to the UK overnight by Thames Valley Police officers, the force said.

She will appear at Oxford Crown Court on Wednesday.
