An inmate has appeared before magistrates accused of murdering a baby killer.

Serving prisoner John Westland, 28, appeared before Leeds Magistrates today accused of murdering fellow inmate Liam Deane at HMP Leeds.

Deane, who was found dead in his cell on Sunday, had last month been jailed for murdering his newborn daughter Luna, in July.

At an earlier hearing Leeds Crown Court heard that Deane, 22, of Wakefield, had punched and shaken the two-day-old infant because she "would not stop crying", reported the Mirror .
