A father who allegedly killed his disabled daughter was later told: & # 39; Now we have to prove that I didn't do it & # 39 ;.

The 9-year-old girl had severe cerebral palsy, was unable to walk or talk and lived days before moving to the parental home in Hunter Valley.

Only a few days later, she was no longer found in her bed in July 2011, after allegedly beating her father several times with serious injuries to her chest and abdomen.

The 61-year-old father was indicted in February 2014 but did not plead guilty of manslaughter when he stood before the Newcastle court.

The girl, who weighed just 15 kilos, was put to bed by her mother on July 17 at about 1:30 pm, the court said.

She was found lifeless about 12 hours later by her father.

The father ran into a bottle in the afternoon of July 18 that demanded to use the phone after he & # 39; found his child dead & # 39 ;, the court heard.

Police and paramedics were called but were unable to breathe new life into the 9-year-old.

The girl, who needed 24-hour assistance, left a shelter in Raymond Terrace a few days before her death.

"There were no marks on her when the staff dressed her that morning and she showed no signs of any discomfort that would indicate she was in pain," said Attorney General Steven Wilkins at the court.

A postmodern investigation confirmed that the girl had died after suffering from serious internal injuries.

The girl had tears in her esophagus, diaphragm and tears in her liver.

Pathologist Dr. Brian Beer said the girl's death was due to bone trauma to her stomach, probably caused by a hand or a fist.

& # 39; Dr. Beer believes that the injuries are not accidental & # 39 ;, Wilkinson told the jury.

The injuries in girls were consistent with the fact that they were caused in a short time, possibly minutes.

& # 39; She didn't get it from us, & # 39; said the father during an interview after the death of his daughter.

After the police were called to investigate her death, they heard the father say suspicious things.

& # 39; Now we have to prove that I didn't do it. I think we need a little time for ourselves – now I think we'll get it, & the police reportedly heard the man say.

The court has yet to determine whether the father was responsible for the girl's death.
