Toddler brain injury accused in court.

Specialist paediatric reports from three hospitals on a two-year-old boy who has received a brain injury are being sought by the defence counsel for the farm worker charged with causing the injury. The charge of causing bodily injury with reckless disregard for safety alleges the assault occurred at a house at Otahuti, in rural Southland, on May 31.

Canterbury dairy worker Aaron Kenneth Charles Howell, 21, was further remanded without plea to November 18 at an appearance before Judge Michael Crosbie in the Christchurch District Court today.
