A couple accused of child cruelty could be facing more charges.
Their 9 year old daughter was found with serious injuries in North Dublin last month.
The young girl was brought to hospital on the night of July 2nd, after she was found with serious injuries at a house.
Last Friday, her parents appeared before Dublin District Court as part of the investigation.
Her 35 year old mother was charged with two counts of child cruelty, while her 37 year old father was charged with one count of child cruelty.
The pair appeared in court for a second time this afternoon, where the woman was visibly upset.
The court heard the couple may face further charges, and they are being held in custody for another week.
The couple, who sat together in court, are due before a Judge again on August 21st.
