The man accused of the beheading murder of Broadwater man Edward ‘Ned’ Kelly will be tried in Lismore in September.
Jonathon Stenberg, 46, was remanded in custody after facing Central Local Court yesterday. His lawyers said they would seek bail at a later date.
Prosecution lawyers have asked for time to assemble more evidence.
Immediately following the death of Mr Kelly in the kitchen of his Broadwater home two weeks ago, his neighbour Stenberg fled to Queensland, where he auditioned for a movie, and then on to Darwin where he set himself up in a sophisticated bush camp.
Echonetdaily understands Mr Kelly’s head has yet to be found.
