Sophie Collombet’s Alleged Murderer to Stand Trial
Criminal Defence Lawyer, Michael Bosscher said outside the Brisbane Magistrates Court that his client, Benjamin Milford who is accused of rape, murder, deprivation of liberty and robbery of Ms Collombet in March last year, was relieved that the committal process was behind them and they could move forward.
Mr Michael Bosscher said he was awaiting final instructions on whether Milward would plead not guilty, in a trial which is expected to start early next year.
“The family are very supportive of him, they understand it is a difficult process and they are standing by him.
“They certainly have nothing but the greatest sympathises as far as the victim’s family is concerned.”
