Cy Walsh, the son of late Crows coach Phil Walsh, has appeared in court charged with his father’s murder.
Walsh, 26, appeared stony-faced by video-link from forensic mental health ward James Nash House, where he is being held.
Prosecutor Lucy Boord asked the Magistrate for the case to be adjourned to prepare a toxicology report on a hair sample and witness statements. The tests on the sample, she said, related to “drugs”.
Walsh’s defence counsel Rebecca Gristwood said it was preferable that Walsh remain at James Nash House, but did not present any medical evidence.
Walsh, who was clean-shaven and had medium length dark hair, spoke briefly during the four minute hearing, saying he understood what had occurred in the court.
He has yet to plead on one count of murder.
The case returns to court in November.
