Man fatally stabbed in Brisbane identified as David Connolly, teenager accused of murder remanded in custody

A teenager accused of the murder of a 43-year-old man in Brisbane's inner north over the weekend has been remanded in custody. The victim has been identified as David

George Connolly. His body was found by a member of the public about 2am yesterday near Wilston train station. The 17-year-old boy, who was charged by police yesterday,

did not appear in the Childrens Court this morning. During a brief mention, a magistrate ordered a full brief of evidence to be provided in six weeks. The matter will

return to court in March. Police allege the boy was running along Newmarket Road near the crime scene when he was intercepted two hours before the discovery of the

43-year-old man's body. Officers allege he was concealing a knife close to 45 centimetres long in a sheath, which they described as "almost a small machete". Police

allege that while he was being questioned, a 17-year-old girl made herself known to police. It is alleged she assaulted a male police officer on the scene. She has

been charged with one count of assaulting police. Police are urging any witnesses or people with dashcam footage from the area between 11pm on Saturday and 2am on Sunday to

come forward.
