Court si­lences failed bail bid

The Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.
