A 15-year-old girl has been arrested after the death of a seven-year-old girl in the English city of York.
The defendant is also charged with possession of an offensive weapon, namely a stanley knife.
A seven-year-old who died after she was attacked on a playing field suffered severe cuts to her neck and chest, a court has heard.
After an eight-minute appearance at York Magistrates Court during which she did not speak, the suspect was remanded in custody in secure accommodation, local media reported.
The victim was found on a track in the Woodthorpe area of York on Monday after police were called to a nearby address.
Katie, who was discovered by dog walkers, died shortly after arriving at hospital.
Katie Rough, 7, was found lying in a field with horrific injuries.

Shkreli rose to national prominence when he raised the price of an HIV drug by more than 5,000 percent at his drug company. Shkreli told TheDC that Duca and her fans will "get what they want" with his suspension.
She wore an oversized grey-coloured sweatshirt and did not enter a plea.
He said: "I spoke to her later, asked if she was OK and she said "No, no, she's my little girl".
Officers remain at the scene while the investigation to establish the full circumstances surrounding the death of the young girl continues.
Katie was described as a "kind and thoughtful child" by her teachers at Westfield Primary School.
Neighbours said children often used the playing field during the summer and it was popular with dog walkers.
Nikki O'Donnell, of Nevis Way, off Alness Drive, arrived with her three-year-old daughter Amelia to put flowers at the scene.
Neighbour Connor Sinclair, 41, said: 'Katie was a really sweet girl, she always looked happy.
May responded: "I join (Corbyn) in expressing condolences to the family and friends of little Katie who died so tragically". We just need to be given time to grieve'.
