PORT ALBERNI, B.C. — A charge of aggravated assault has been upgraded to manslaughter against a British Columbia father whose baby daughter died of critical injuries.

The little girl died on Nov. 3.
RCMP say the child was brought to the West Coast General Hospital on Oct. 28, and later transferred to BC Children's Hospital.
Details on what happened to her have not been released.
Twenty-year-old Baader's next court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 30.
