A mum has been charged with murdering her five-year-old daughter.  Sutha Sivanantham, 35, is accused of killing Sayagi Sivanantham, who died in hospital after being stabbed in Mitcham, south London in June.  Police were called to an address on Monarch Parade at 4pm on Tuesday, June 30 to a report of two people injured.  Officers attended and found a woman and a girl suffering from knife wounds.  A post-mortem examination held at Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital on Friday, 3 July, gave cause of death as stab injuries.  Sivanantham appeared via video link at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court today, speaking only to confirm her name and date of birth.  The case has now been sent to the Old Bailey, where a hearing is scheduled to take place on Tuesday.  Speaking in June Superintendent Richard Smith, from the Met’s South West Command Unit, said: “Today a family are grieving for their little girl, and we are doing everything we can to support them.  This terrible incident has left a family distraught and the local community in shock.  I would like to pay tribute to the police officers and ambulance service colleagues who responded to this frightening situation and thank them for working so hard to try and save Sayagi.  She will remain in our thoughts.”
