Investigations continue as mum charged with children’s murders
INVESTIGATIONS into accused Gold Coast killer mum Maree Crabtree are ongoing, a court has heard.
Crabtree, 53, was in January 2018 arrested in Brisbane and charged over the alleged murders of her children Jonathan Crabtree, 26, and Erin Crabtree, 18, who died on the Gold Coast.
The killings allegedly occurred in Maudsland in 2012 and Upper Coomera in 2017.
In a mention in the Brisbane Magistrates Court today, Crabtree's Legal Aid defence lawyer Jodie Mair asked for the matter to be adjoined for five weeks so she could take new legal instructions from the mother, who is in custody.
She said police were currently conducting "ongoing investigations" into the case.
Crabtree's case was adjourned February.
