Man com­mit­ted for trial

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE hus­band of a bikini-clad woman who held up a Can­non­vale video store while pre­tend­ing to armed with a gun has now been com­mit­ted to the Dis­trict Court for his part in the crime.

Michael John El­liott has been in pri­son since bail was re­fused at his first court ap­pear­ance on De­cem­ber 1.

At the time it was al­leged he drove away from the video store with his wife Tammy Ann Mules and their three chil­dren in the car. The 35-year-old was then caught drink-driv­ing on Dingo Beach Road.

When asked on Mon­day if he had any­thing to say about the charge of rob­bery in com­pany and while armed, El­liott replied “not at this stage Your Hon­our”.

Mag­is­trate Haydn St­jern­qvist told him he was com­mit­ted for trial in the Mackay Dis­trict Court at a date to be no­ti­fied by the Depart­ment of Public Pros­e­cu­tions.

The re­main­ing charges of drinkdriv­ing, driv­ing with­out a li­cence and pos­sess­ing drugs, uten­sils and items used in the com­mis­sion of crime were ad­journed to May 4 to al­low for an out­come in the Dis­trict Court.
