Bice pleaded guilty to assault and was sentenced to five years in prison.
A court heard at the time that he threw her on his bedroom floor because he wanted her to stop crying.
The attack resulted in traumatic brain injury and many chronic health issues that stuck with her throughout her short life.
“It is believed that the injuries sustained in the attack ultimately resulted in his death,” WA police said Wednesday.
Her daughter had been in hospice care since 2015 and died at Perth Children’s Hospital last June.
Her father appeared in Carnarvon Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.
He will soon appear before Stirling Garden Magistrates Court on January 19.
