Accused child killer's trial to last another two weeks

THE trial against accused child killer Warren Ross is expected to run for at least another two weeks.

Since the trial began last month, the NSW Supreme Court has heard varying accounts about the day two-year-old Tanilla Warrick Deaves died.

Police allege the toddler, who is buried at Ballina where her father lives, was assaulted by Ross in the bathroom of their Central Coast home in August, 2011.

Tanilla's mother Donna Deaves this week told the jury she felt conflicted after her daughter's death because she still loved Ross but hated him for what he had allegedly done.

Police allege Tanilla's head was slammed against a shower wall before she was left in a pram for almost two days.

In a 000 call played in court, Deaves can be heard telling the operator that her baby was "not f***ing breathing" while Ross later claims the toddler has fallen off her bed.

He told police bruises found all over Tanilla's body were a result of a trampoline accident and another incident where she fell from a set of drawers onto a bed.

The trial continues in Sydney.
