Bail extended for care workers charged over toddler's death
THE pair charged with manslaughter after a toddler was found dead in mini-van have had their bail extended.
In February, three-year-old Maliq (Meeky) Nicholas Floyd Namok-Malamoo was found dead in a Goodstart Early Learning vehicle at an Edmonton childcare centre.
In the Cairns Magistrates Court earlier this week, co-accused Dionne Grills, 34, and Michael Lewis, 45, were not required to front Magistrate Joe Pinder for legal teams to identify outstanding items from the brief of evidence.
In the case of Ms Grills, forensic DNA results, GIS mapping, a timeline, pathology statements and three police statements are yet to be submitted.
The results of the DNA forensic results are likely to be made available to the defendant within six weeks, with the other items expected earlier.
A partial brief was disclosed in the case of Mr Lewis on May 22, however the same items were missing from the accused man's brief of evidence.
Both Ms Grills and Mr Lewis were remanded for committal mention on August 12. Bail is to continue.
