An inquest has concluded a baby who died after suffering a fractured skull was unlawfully killed by one of her parents but it was not possible to determine which one.
Sunaria Hamid-Howells was rushed to hospital from her Pontypridd home on 30 December 2012 but later died from her injuries.
Coroner Christopher Wooley found that Sunari's injuries were caused by 'excessive shaking' and the 'injuries caused by this unlawful act were sufficient to cause her death'.
One person did the unlawful act. It is not possible on the evidence to determine whether this person was Ms Howells or Mr Hamid but I did find that it could only have been one of them
The inquest heard the medical cause of death was brain swelling and subdural haemorrhage. Mr Woolley added, "I'd like to offer my condolences to all who genuinely cared for Sunaria during her short life."
