The man accused of murdering his three-year-old daughter violently pulled her arm, threw her against a wall and stomped on her, a jury has been told. Kefu Ikamanu, 29, is on trial in the High Court at Auckland for the murder of Seini Ikamanu, who died in Starship Hospital in December 2010. Along with a charge of murder, Ikamanu faces a charge of causing grievous bodily harm and another charge of injuring with intent to injure. In his opening address on Wednesday morning, crown prosecutor Phil Hamlin told the jury Seini was fatally injured in her home by her father 21 days before her third birthday, in March 2010.
