    An Auckland man accused of murdering a 16-month-old boy can now be named before a trial next year

    An Auckland man accused of murdering a 16-month-old boy can now be named before a trial next year


    Phillip John Welsh appeared in the High Court at Auckland this morning charged with murdering Malcolm Bell.

    The now 52-year-old's interim suppression order has lapsed.

    Welsh has already pleaded not guilty and is on bail - but failed to front for this morning's brief procedural hearing.

    His lawyer says he was stuck in traffic.

    Welsh is due to appear in court again in February, with a trial set down for August.
