A mother accused of trying to murder her baby boy by pouring bleach into his feeding tube has been granted bail and will be transferred to another psychiatric facility for further treatment.

Brooke Evelyn Lucas is accused of trying to poison her 13-month-old son William, who was born with Pierre Robin sequence and needs around-the-clock care, in December.

It’s alleged she poured bleach into William’s formula, which was drip-fed through a tube into the baby’s stomach.

Ms Lucas was granted bail today when she appeared in Stirling Gardens Magistrate’s Court by videolink from the Frankland Centre at Graylands Hospital.

As part of her bail conditions, she will be transferred to another mental health treatment facility for further treatment.

Ms Lucas is also banned from contacting her children or coming within 500m of them.

She will appear in court again next month.
