The mother of a nine-month-old baby girl who was found dead on a Surfers Paradise beach last month has been charged.
The 23-year-old woman was extradited on Thursday from Queensland to NSW and charged in Tweeds Head with failing to provide for a child, causing danger of death.
She was refused bail and is due to appear at Byron Bay Local Court on Friday.
The baby's father, a homeless 47-year-old man, was charged on November 22 with murdering his daughter whose body was found on a Surfers Paradise beach by passers-by three days earlier.
It's alleged the infant was thrown into the water at Tweed Heads, NSW, where she died, before drifting north for about 30km.
