Murder accused and friend of victim back before court

ACCUSED murderer Mohammed Khan appeared before the Rockhampton Magistrates Court via video-link yesterday.

Khan faces murder and misconduct with a corpse by interference for the death of Syeid Alam, whose remains were found on April 16, 2016 in an inlet off the Fitzroy River at Park Avenue.

Khan was a close friend of the victim and father-of-three, and was charged with his murder on May 17.

It is alleged Syeid Alam was decapitated.

Khan's solicitor, Brendan Beavon of Russo Lawyers appeared via phone, and said given the extensive brief of evidence they requested an adjournment to the new year.

Khan will reappear via video-link on January 19, 2017.
