Magistrate set deadline for documents in murder case

PROSECUTORS have a five-week deadline to provide four remaining documents, including telephone records, to the defence team of the man who allegedly murdered Macleay Island grandmother Liselotte Watson.

Ms Watson, 85, was found dead in the bedroom of her Alistair Ct home on November 13, 2012.

Steven Mark John Fennell, 53, was arrested and charged with Ms Watson's murder in March this year.

Crown prosecutor Elizabeth Kelso told Brisbane Magistrates Court on Monday there were more than 250 witness statements, 100 exhibits and 200 disclosure statements which made up the large brief of evidence.

She said only four statements needed to be collected including Optus and Telstra records along with computer forensic reports.

The magistrate ordered all outstanding material to be made available by November 4.

The case will be back before the court for a committal mention on November 18.
