UPDATE 1 July 2016

Michelle Dearing, the baby’s mother, paid a heartfelt tribute to her little boy. She said she is left only with precious memories of baby Chayse, report 7 NEWS.

“The hurt will never go away,” Ms Dearing said. “I’m never going to hear him say ‘Mum’ again.”

“It just shouldn’t have happened,” Ms Dearing said. “Such a beautiful little boy. He was so happy, so innocent.”

She recalled her son’s “little giggle” and his smile. “The beautiful blue eyes he had.”

“No one should ever have to go through what I’ve been through in the last couple of days,” Ms Dearing said.

“Just being there in hospital, knowing that he’s never going to look into my eyes again. Waking up knowing that he’s not there anymore. It hurts so much.”

Baby Chayse suffered fatal injuries to his head and neck.

Update 29 August 2017

Dwayne Lindsay, 34, is facing day two of a committal hearing, charged with murdering the six-month-old baby while his mother was out shopping.

Forensic pediatrician Dr Geetika Badkar told the court on Tuesday low levels of methylamphetamine, or the drug ice, were found in Chayse’s system.

‘I’m unable to say how that entered Chayse’s body,’ Dr Badkar said.

Emergency crews found infant Chayse Dearing pale with strangle-like marks around his neck, a bump on his head, genital injuries and blood around his nose at a Glenroy unit on the morning of June 26, 2016.

The injuries were ‘almost certainly caused by assault’, medical experts said.

It has been reported Lindsay resented having to care for the baby.

A neighbour of Mr Lindsay and Ms Dearing told the court he heard “everything” that happened inside the couple’s unit the day of the baby’s death.

“(The accused) was p—– off because they left the baby with him. He was saying, ‘hurry up and get home’.”

  • I was not aware that the baby had been drugged too.
    I thought the case was very sad but to inflict such drugs on an innocent baby destroys my faith in human nature.
