A Newcastle man has fronted Wyong Local Court...charged with a baby's murder on the weekend.
The 6-month-old boy was rushed to John Hunter Hospital on Saturday, but sadly passed away the next day.
A post mortem found the infant died from a traumatic head injury.
A 28 year old man who was caring for the boy at the time was arrested yesterday at a Budgewoi property.
It's understood JIE SMITH had been in a relationship with the mother for about 6 weeks.
He's been refused bail and ordered to reappear in May.
