Two men charged over murder

By DARRYN NUFER

JEANIE Nichols felt relief yesterday after two men were charged with the murder of her sister Suzanne Standing.

"I would have walked to the end of the Earth if we couldn't find them,'' Ms Nichols said after The Morning Bulletin broke the news to her just before 4pm yesterday.

The body of Ms Standing, 30, was found on Saturday morning with severe facial injuries in the back yard of her Etna Creek home.

Yesterday afternoon police said they had charged two men, each with a single count of murder. One faced Rockhampton Magistrates Court. He was Scott Andrew Joblin, 34.

A 20-year-old will face court today.

Joblin's five-year-old son is with relatives.

Ms Nichols said it felt "really good'' because police "had done their job and they'd done it for my sister.''

"No-one should have to go through the pain she went through and the pain the family has gone through,'' Ms Nichols said.

Ms Nichols said she had been overwhelmed by support from the community since making an impassioned appeal on Tuesday for public help to solve the crime.

"I'm so grateful to everyone.

"The whole family has been overwhelmed with support from even the SES, police and investigators. s tragic as it is, I'm going to really miss my sister.

"That's all I can say really.
