Court silences failed bail bid
A COURT has lifted secrecy orders on the identity of an alleged murderer – and then banned the media from reporting why he has been refused bail.
Peter John Bentley, 33, of Seacombe Gardens, faced the Adelaide Magistrates Court yesterday.
It is alleged he murdered another man, his neighbour, on Miller St, near the intersection of Diagonal Rd, in Seacombe Gardens just before 2am on September 26.
They also asked Bentley be released on bail – a request opposed by police prosecutors.
