Mother charged with murder of 3-year-old girl

A woman has been charged with the murder of a three-year-old girl in NSW.

Emergency services were called to a home on March Street in Orange just before 7.30pm on August 1, after receiving reports of a concern for welfare.

Upon arrival, officers found the toddler deceased, and her 40-year-old mother in a semi-conscious state.


Paramedics rushed to the scene and transported the woman to hospital for further treatment.

She was released yesterday before being taken to Orange Police Station where she was charged with murder.

The woman was refused bail to appear at Orange Local Court today.
