A 29-year-old Soweto man is behind bars for the murder of his four year old girl, police said.

"Police found the child lying face down with bruises all over her body," warrant officer Kay Makhubela said on Saturday.

She was certified dead by paramedics who were called to try and save her.

According to information, the girl soiled herself at the family home in Rockville, Soweto and that angered the father. Makhubela said the man then severely assaulted the child.

"At this stage it is not known what the man used to assault the child, investigations are still on going," he said.

The man is expected to appear at the Protea Magistrate's Court on Monday.
