A 21-YEAR-OLD man accused of attempting to murder a baby in Enniskillen last year has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

Timuras Kozlov, of Derrychara Drive, Enniskillen, had denied attempting to murder the infant, then aged six months old, on Saturday, May 6, 2017.

He was due to stand trial on the charge at Dungannon Crown Court next month.

However, appearing before Dungannon Crown Court this week, the Lithuanian national entered a guilty plea to unlawfully inflicting grievous bodily harm (GBH) on the baby.

It is understood that the incident occurred at Castlecoole Road, Enniskillen.

The charge of attempted murder has been “left on the books” and not proceeded with by the Public Prosecution Service (PPS).

His Honour, Judge Stephen Fowler QC, adjourned the case until Wednesday, April 18 to allow for the preparation of pre-sentence reports.
