Jaymin Abdulrahman is accused of trying to kill the six-day-old girl, who was discovered in a bin at the bottom of a rubbish chute in Wolverhampton.

The 24-year-old spoke only to confirm her name during a short hearing at Wolverhampton Crown Court yesterday.

For the first time today, the media is able to name Abdulrahman and show a picture of her. A previous court order banning the publication of her child’s name or anything that could identify the youngster, therefore preventing the media from naming the defendant, was scaled down by Judge John Warner during the hearing.

Abdulrahman’s child was taken to hospital after she was discovered on September 8 and remains in a critical condition.

The defendant will next appear at court for a plea and case management hearing on January 4. A date for trial will be fixed at a later date.

A 32-year-old man arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender has been released on bail pending further inquiries.
