Updated about an hour ago

Two men have been committed to stand trial over the death of a three-year-old girl in Brisbane two years ago.

Christopher Arthur Neville Kent and the girl's father Matthew Lee Williamson are charged with manslaughter and cruelty of a child.

The Brisbane Magistrates Court heard how Kyhesha-Lee Joughin died of internal injuries that became infected over a period of days.

It also heard how the three-year-old had injuries to her genitalia, bruising to both sides of her face, and lacerations to her ear consistent with being pulled.

Magistrate Christine Roney committed the men to stand trial. Kent has been granted bail.
