A Lethbridge man, accused in the death of a nine month of boy, will be heading to trial. 41 year old Tyler Hogan appeared in Lethbridge Provincial Court Wednesday (Dec. 13), along with his Calgary lawyer for a judge's decision following a preliminary hearing which was held back in mid-August. It was determined there is enough evidence to go trial. Hogan is charged with second degree murder. Police say little Austin Wright died in April 2016 of blunt force trauma. According to investigators, the baby boy was reportedly in the care of his mother's boyfriend at the time. Hogan is expected back in court January 8th to set a date for his trial. - Pat Siedlecki & Sam Borsato
