A man and a woman accused of assaulting a 4-year-old kid in Flaxmere have been remanded in custody on bail.
A youngster was discovered seriously injured at a Hastings area residence in January of last year.
According to police, the youngster made a spectacular recovery but suffered lifelong brain damage.
Police charged a 32-year-old woman and a 27-year-old male in connection with the incident last week.
This morning, they appeared in front of a registrar at the Hastings District Court.
They were given temporary name suppression and will appear in court again next month.
