A man who punched and shook his two-day-old baby daughter to death has found dead in his prison cell.

Liam Deane,22, was convicted of murder earlier this year after a court heard that he attacked the newborn child when she "would not stop crying".

The baby named Luna, had been left with her father while her mother went to sleep on July 10 at their home in Wakefield.

The court heart that Deane punched the baby in face, shook her and squeezed her.

She died in intensive care at Leeds infirmary after suffering " catastrophic brain injuries".

Deane subsequently broke down during a police interview and admitted the attack.

Another prisoner has been charged with Deane's murder.

John Westland, 28, appeared at Leeds Magistrates court and was remanded in custody.
