February 20 has been set for the start of the trial of a 30-year-old man charged with the murder of 15-month-old Leith Allen Hutchison in Greymouth a year ago.
The man’s name suppression was continued at a call-over held in the High Court at Christchurch today where the trial date was confirmed.
The trial will be held in the Greymouth High Court and is set to last three weeks.
The toddler was taken to Grey Base Hospital’s emergency department shortly after midnight on April 21, 2015. He died of a head injury two days later.
