A man in New Zealand has been charged with murdering his two-year-old daughter by throwing her against a wall and then stomping on her because she never smiled at him.
Kefu Ikamanu pleaded not guilty in the high court in Auckland to murdering his daughter Seini by breaking her shoulder, pelvis and causing a brain injury.
The man threw his daughter against a wall and then stomped on her because she never smiled at him, the prosecutor told the court.
The girl died of fatal injuries in March 2010, 21 days before her third birthday. She was affected with pneumonia, which the court heard had been caused by the injury to her brain.
The court heard the accused was not able to form a close bond with his daughter and became "frustrated and angry" with what he thought was the spoilt behaviour of his child.
