A man has been charged over the murder of a 22-month-old girl who died of ‘unexplained injuries’.
Michael Wild, 28, is due to appear at Salford Magistrates’ Court today after Ella-Rose Clover died on Sunday.
Ella was rushed by ambulance from Wythenshawe,Manchester, to hospital at around 1.50pm after reports she was having a medical episode.
Medics could not save her life after her arrival and she was pronounced dead on arrival.
A postmortem revealed she had unexplained injuries and detectives launched an investigation.
The baby girl’s mother Pagan Clover said: ‘Mine, my family and friend’s world has been torn apart by the loss of our beautiful Ella-Rose.
‘Ella was the funniest, cheekiest and most lovable little girl and none of our lives will ever be the same again.
‘We are broken beyond words and would ask that our privacy is respected at this most difficult time and we are allowed to grieve in peace.’
A 34-year-old woman arrested on suspicion of murder has been released on bail pending further inquiries.
A GoFundMe site has been set up for Ella Rose’s ‘final goodbye’ by her mother’s best friend Jessica Booth.
The appeal stated: ‘Ella Rose was such an amazing little girl [who] no matter what was always smiling, she could walk into a room and light it up, sadly on 21.01.18 Ella-rose grew her angel wings, this is a sad and devastating time for everyone who has had the pleasure to be part of Ella’s life, we’ve set this page up for any family and friends to make donations towards Ella’s final goodbye. Everyone loves you princess, sleep tight Bells xx’
The fund had reached £1,335 by Thursday, exceeding its target. Ella Rose’s auntie Olivia paid tribute to the toddler on Sunday night.
She wrote: ‘So tonight we lost this beautiful little angel so proud to be your auntie you was such a strong little girl that did us all proud but your in a better and safer place now gorgeous! I hope you have lots of fun up there Ella Auntie Liv loves you so much.’
