New details revealed about death of Queensland baby boy

A Brisbane court has heard disturbing new details about the circumstances surrounding the death of a baby boy, allegedly at the hands of his mother.

Dexter was only nine months old when he died.

The Brisbane Supreme Court heard a post-mortem report found he was malnourished and likely severely neglected by his most acute needs.

His mother, Natalie Jade Whitehead, reportedly used drugs with her partner and told police she put the baby to sleep at 8:30pm one night and left him unchecked for 21 hours.

When she did, he was dead.

The court heard the woman allegedly tried to hide her drug use by putting syringes in a neighbor’s bin before notifying authorities of the child’s death.

Whitehead’s bail request was rejected in the Brisbane Supreme Court on Friday.

A man is also charged with death, but his case has not been heard in court today.

The case will be called next month.
