More details have emerged regarding the two-week-old baby in Northern Ireland who is fighting for its life after it was allegedly raped.

The 25-year-old man who was charged with the sexual assault and grievous bodily harm of the infant appeared in court today. The accused who is remanded in custody reportedly appeared before a judge at the Armagh Magistrates’ Court via video-link.

UK publication The Mirror reports that the man – whose name cannot be released due to a court-mandated gag order to protect the baby’s identity – only spoke to confirm his name.

No application for bail was granted during the court session today.
