Witness delay hits baby rape charges case.
Byline: DONAL MCMAHON
THE case of a man accused of raping and causing brain injuries to a baby has been hit by expert witness delays, a court has heard.
Outstanding medical evidence is due from pathology, radiology, neurological and ophthalmic consultants.
The defendant, 26, who cannot be named in order to protect identity of his alleged victim, appeared before Newry Magistrates.
The then two-week-old child was allegedly attacked last September before being treated at Daisy Hill Hospital.
District Judge Eamonn King said: "You cannot just conjure up expert witnesses out of thin air."
The case was adjourned for four weeks to confirm the specialists.
