Father of baby found dead with serious head injury in a house so dirty that it was unsuitable for children will stand trial accused of killing the boy
- The five-month-old Adrian Joshua Wommie Ware was found dead in the Brisbane home
- His father Kozan Samual Thomas Ware is accused of killing his son
- He was determined to appear before the Supreme Court later
The father of a baby boy who did not respond in a house in Brisbane, described as being so dirty that it was unsuitable for children, will go for the murder.
The five-month-old Adrian Joshua Wommie Ware was found on March 28 in the Russell Street home in Cleveland last year.
His father Kozan Samual Thomas Ware is accused of murdering his son and appeared Tuesday in Brisbane Magistrates Court, where he was later tried before the Supreme Court.

Doctors were questioned during the hearing about the cause of Adrian's premature death.
The court heard that Ware told the police that his son had fallen from a single bed to a concrete carpet about four or five days before his death.
But Andrew Kedziora, who performed an autopsy on the little boy, said it was unlikely that such a fall would have caused Adrian & # 39; s head injury, which he described as sufficient to cause his death.
& # 39; I have thought about different options, different scenarios and the possibility of a bed or a short fall, is always considered when there is evidence of head injury, & # 39; Dr. told Kedziora on the court.
& # 39; A short fall is unlikely to have caused this degree of injury and death of a child. & # 39;
The lawyer of Ware, Deborah Holliday, was extensively questioned whether he had considered whether the boy had died of cot death and whether he had wrongly excluded it as a cause.

Dr. Kedziora said he could not diagnose SIDS because of his other findings.
& # 39; I don't know who would be brave enough to diagnose cot death in such circumstances, & # 39; he added.
Similar questions were asked to the forensic pediatrician Dr. Catherine Skellern, who said that the boy's death could not be classified as SIDS due to his head injury.
But she agreed with Mrs. Holliday that regardless of that injury, an unsafe sleeping environment could have caused his death.
The court heard that before his death Adrian had a runny nose, a rash in his neck and scalp, scrapes on his head and face and had vomited the day before his death.
Children who lived in the apartment slept on mattresses without sheets, rubbish spread throughout the house and Ware slept on a couch.
Dr. Skellern described the conditions in the house as & # 39; poor hygiene unsuitable for a person, especially children & # 39 ;, on the basis of photos & # 39; s provided to her.
