A mother has denied murdering her four-year-old daughter.
Carly Ann Harris, 37, appeared at Cardiff Crown Court accused of killing Amelia Brooke Harris.
Amelia, described by her family as a "fun-loving, caring and bubbly little girl", was found dead at a house in Trealaw, near Tonypandy on June 8 this year.
Her mother appeared at court on Monday for a brief hearing in which she denied murder and an alternative count of manslaughter.
Michael Jones QC, prosecuting, said: "This case concerns the tragic events on June 8 this year in Tonypandy."
Judge Eleri Rees, The Recorder of Cardiff, said a trial date would now be set for December 10 at Merthyr Crown Court.
Harris, from Brithweunydd Road, Tonypandy, South Wales was remanded in custody.
