The infant was just six weeks old when he was rushed to Narrogin Hospital in October 2017.
He suffered bleeding to his brain and was left blind after an alleged bashing.
Nathaniel died a year later – and his mum Erica-Leigh Lawrence told ABC that her boy was a “fighter who continued to fight until his last breath”.
MacRae, 25, was originally charged with grievous bodily harm but his charges were upgraded following a police probe.
