Man to face trial for baby murder bid

By Staff Reporter

A man is to stand trial for the attempted murder of a six-month-old boy who fell from an upstairs window of a house in an incident last year.

Appearing in the dock of Dungannon Crown Court was Timuras Kozlov of Derrychara Drive, Enniskillen, but who has been in custody since his arrest.

Originally from Lithuania, he is accused of attempting to murder the baby on the evening of May 6, 2017, at an address in the Castlecoole Road area of Enniskillen.

It is alleged the child was thrown from a second floor window, although Kozlov has always insisted the fall was accidental, and pleaded not guilty to attempted murder.

The infant sustained serious injuries and was treated in the Royal Victoria Hospital for Sick Children.

His Honour Judge Stephen Fowler QC remanded Kozlov in continuing custody and ruled that a trial would begin on March 16.
