Morcombe Case Grinds Slowly
Parents of Daniel Morcombe have expressed concern that the trial of their son’s alleged murderer, Brett Peter Cowan, may not be for at least another three years.
Last year, Cowan, was charged with Daniel Morcombe’s abduction and murder.
criminal lawyer Tim Meehan, of Bosscher Lawyers, said he expected his client’s case to reach a committal hearing by early next year.
“There’s just such a significant amount of material, which is why there are delays after an eight-year investigation,” he said.
“It’s a fine balancing act between having the matter proceed in a timely fashion and doing justice to my client, whose liberty is on the line.
