Daniel Morcombe’s accused murderer has been committed to stand trial in Queensland’s Supreme Court.
Mr Cowan will face the Supreme Court accused of child stealing, deprivation of liberty, indecently dealing with a child, murder and interfering with a corpse.
Cowan did not apply for bail at the end of proceedings in Brisbane Magistrates Court.
Cowan’s lawyer Michael Bosscher said he could concede there was a prima facie case but could not consent to it being sent to trial.
Outside court, Mr Bosscher said he would discuss with his client whether they would make an alibi claim within the 14 days allocated.
