Her parents appeared before Dublin District Court on Friday last.

Her 35 year old mother was charged with two counts of child cruelty, while her 37 year old father was charged with one count of child cruelty.

The couple appeared before Dublin District Court this afternoon where an application was made to further remand the pair in custody for a period of one week – which was consented to by the defence.

The couple sat together in court and the woman was visibly upset.
