The family of a baby girl who died after she was taken to hospital from a flat in Radcliffe have spoken of their heartache and paid tribute to their 'little princess'.
Orianna Crilly-Cifrova - just 12 months old - was learning to walk and talk and starting to develop her own 'little personality', her family said in an emotional statement released through police.
"She had the cheekiest smile with the biggest brown eyes, a combination that melted out hearts and wrapped us around her little finger.
"Orianna was our little princess and she was the centre of her daddy's world."
The tribute was released after as a man appeared before magistrates in Manchester on Saturday charged with her murder.
Orianna's mother is also facing a criminal charge in connection with her daughter's death.
Jamie Chadwick - who is not the baby's father - is charged with a single count of murder.
Chelsea Crilly - identified in court as Orianna's mother - is charged with causing or allowing the death or serious harm of a child, police confirmed.
Police said officers and emergency services were called to a property on Cross Lane, Radcliffe, Bury, shortly after 2.25pm on Wednesday. Orianna was taken to hospital where she later died despite the best efforts of specialist doctors, police said.
Chadwick, 21, of Cross Lane, Radcliffe, appeared before Manchester and Salford magistrates court on Saturday morning charged with a single count of murder.
Wearing glasses, a grey jumper and trousers, he spoke only to confirm his name, date of birth and full address during a brief hearing.
There was no application for bail.
No plea was entered.
Chadwick was remanded in custody and is due to appear at Manchester's Minshull Street Crown Court on Tuesday.
Crilly, 19, of Warwick Road, Atherton, Wigan, also appeared at Manchester and Salford magistrates court, as her family sat in the public gallery.
She spoke only to confirm her name, date of birth and address.
No plea was entered.
An application for bail made on her behalf was refused.
She too was remanded in custody to appear at the same court as Chadwick on Tuesday.
