Cairns man charged with murder

CAIRNS Detectives have charged a man with murder following the suspicious death of a man at Mooroobool last Saturday.

Officers were initially called to a Lotus Place address around 1.40pm on 9 December where they located a 76-year-old local man deceased.

A 51-year-old man who is known to the man was located at a Whitfield residence a short time later.

He has since been charged with one count of murder (domestic violence offence) and appeared in the Cairns Magistrates Court earlier this week.
