Serving prisoner John Westland, 28, appeared before Leeds Magistrates this week, accused of killing Deane.

Liam Deane, 22, from Wakefield, West Yorkshire, was found dead in his cell at HMP Leeds on Sunday.

Westfield was remanded in custody to appear at Leeds Crown Court on Thursday.

Police did not reveal any further details about the circumstances or the man who has died. Luna's mum had left her with Deane while she went to get some sleep.

Deane's death comes just five weeks after he was jailed for life with a minimum of 10 years over the death of his daughter in July.

In the vicious attack he punched Luna to the face, squeezed her body and arms and shook her.

"Luna suffered an assault at the hands of one of the people who was responsible for her care and wellbeing".

Michael Smith, prosecuting, said the injuries found on the baby included injuries to her brain, body and face.

Deane had told Luna's mother that she had fallen in the night and hit her head.

Paramedics arrived and noticed her face was badly swollen and bruised.

He broke down under interrogation and admitted to detectives that he "lost it" when the baby wouldn't stop crying. A medical examiner indicated that the infant's cause of death was blunt force trauma that led to "catastrophic brain injuries".

Dean's representation said "there is simply no explanation for the defendant's behaviour". "His actions were wholly and utterly out of character for him". The defendant will have a very long time to reflect upon his awful behaviour'.

Mr Wright had read a victim statement to the court on behalf of Luna's mother.

It stated: "Seeing Luna on life support in the hospital will last with me forever. I would not wish it upon my worst enemy".
