The man accused of murdering a West Coast toddler has been granted continued name suppression.

In April last year, 15-month-old Leith Hutchison died from a serious head injury.

The 30-year-old accused of killing him appeared in the High Court at Christchurch this morning.

Justice Cameron Mander extended the man's name suppression and remanded him in custody until April 19 when he will enter a plea.
