Court to decide fate of alleged brother killer
A NANANGO man charged with manslaughter will apply for bail before Kingaroy Magistrates Court today.
Police allege he killed his younger brother earlier this year.
Police allege about 3.15pm on Monday, February 24, two brothers became involved in a fight at a residence on Chester Street at Nanango.
During the altercation, police allege Gregory Jason Krause, 47, kneed his younger brother, a 41-year-old man, in the head.
The younger brother was taken to Kingaroy Hospital before being flown to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in a critical condition, where he was later confirmed dead.
Originally charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm at Kingaroy Magistrates Court in February, Krause’s charge has since been upgraded to manslaughter.
The decision whether or not to release him on bail will fall on Magistrate Barry Barrett today, Tuesday November 10.
