The uncle of an 11-year-old girl who was allegedly stabbed to death has been charged with her murder.
Jasmine Forrester died after being found with serious injuries at her home in Wolverhampton on Friday.
Her uncle Delroy Forrester, 51, has now been remanded in custody and will appear at Walsall Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
Det Insp Ian Wilkins, from West Midlands Police, said: ‘We are continuing to support Jasmine’s family at this truly tragic time.
‘The family have asked for privacy and we really hope everyone can respect that wish.
‘We are not seeking anyone else in relation to this incident, but if anyone has information please get in contact with us.’
Jasmine was discovered at her home just after 1am on February 9 after a neighbour heard a disturbance.
She was rushed to hospital in a critical condition, but passed away later that day.
A postmortem examination is due to take place today to determine the cause of death.
