A 20-year-old man from Cornwall has appeared in court charged with the murder of a three-month-old boy who died more than a year ago.

Tyrone Coukham was taken to Royal Cornwall Hospital with severe injuries on 20 July 2010 and died the next day.

Stephen Coukham, from Hendra Road, Truro, did not enter a plea when he appeared before Truro Magistrates Court.

He was remanded in custody until 11 October.

Mr Coukham's lawyer will make a bail application before a judge at Exeter Crown Court later.
