A man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a three-year-old boy.

Liam Whoriskey, of Glenabbey Gardens, Londonderry, is accused of killing Kayden McGuinness.

The 23-year-old man appeared in Londonderry Magistrates' Court on Wednesday in connection with the toddler's death in the city on September 17 last year.

The body of the boy was found at a property in the Bogside area of Derry.

No details of the case were heard and no bail application was made, however a defence solicitor said an application for bail will be made next week.
