The mother of a two-year-old girl found dead in a house has appeared in court accused of her murder.

Macy Hogan was found in a house in Packett Street in Stoke-on-Trent on Monday. More tests will be done after a post-mortem examination did not reveal a clear cause of death, police said.

Cody-Anne Jackson, 19, from Packett Street, appeared at North Staffordshire Justice Centre on Thursday.

She is next due to appear at Stafford Crown Court on Monday.

Staffordshire Police said a 22-year-old man arrested in connection with the death and subsequently freed on bail had been released from bail without charge and was no longer part of the investigation.
