MADRID -  (AFP) - The 10-year-old daughter of convicted British murderer Tony Alexander King has died at a Spanish hospital after being pulled from a private swimming pool, Spanish media reported Wednesday.

The girl died in the early hours of Monday at a hospital in Malaga where she was taken to after the incident in the nearby town of Mijas, the Europa Press agency reported.

Spanish police are investigating the incident, local media reported.

The girl was the only child of King, who spent time in jail in England for a series of sexual assaults in London in the 1980s.

He was later jailed for life in Spain after being convicted of the murders of two teenage girls and an attempted rape.

The girl reportedly lived in Spain with her mother Cecilia, King's estranged wife, and her stepdad.

She was born in Britain in 1997 shortly before the family moved to Spain, where her parents later separated.

Cecilia denounced her husband for the murders of the two teenagers in 2003.
