THE teenager accused of murdering 10-month-old Zayden Veal-Whitting in Long Gully has been remanded in custody until a four-day committal hearing on September 10.
Harley Hicks, 19, made no application for bail at a brief committal mention in the Bendigo Magistrates Court today.
He has denied any involvement in the baby's death.
The case was adjourned in January this year, to gain further DNA evidence and a pathologist report.
The reports, referred to at an earlier court hearing as significant by Hicks' lawyer Sam Norton, will be used in the upcoming hearing.
Hicks - who reportedly has a mild intellectual disability - was charged on September 24, 2012, with Zayden's murder.
Police were called to Zayden's home in Eaglehawk Road, Long Gully, after a reported burglary about 7am on June 15, 2012.
As police were on their way to the house they received another phone call to say the 10-month-old had been taken to hospital in an ambulance. Zayden, who is believed to have suffered head injuries, later died.
Forensic evidence cleared Zayden's parents of the murder.
Hicks is currently serving a 12-month sentence after pleading guilty to 23 offences including burglary, aggravated burglary and theft committed between May 16 and June 15, 2012, in Long Gully, Bendigo, and North Bendigo.
Hicks requested this month to be transferred from the youth detention centre to an adult prison "to access better mental health care".
This application was refused.
He will be moved to an adult prison next month, when his sentence at youth detention expires.
