A second man has been charged with the murder of 22-year-old Sam Thompson, following a brief court appearance by a Brisbane man who faces the same charges.
Mr Thompson’s remains are yet to be found and forensic officers are continuing investigations at a home in Bald Hills which “remains a primary crime scene”, police say.
Police refused to confirm whether the Bald Hills man lived at the property, or if he was connected to it in any way.

It’s been over two years since Dawn of the Planet of the Apes – the sequel to 2011 sleeper hit Rise of the Planet of the Apes – was released, but now a new trailer for the upcoming instalment has landed at CinemaCon. Details on War for the Planet of the Apes emerged last year and it seems this outing will go quite some way to working towards the 1968 film, which starred Charlton Heston. Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) is returning to direct having taken over from Rupert Wyatt who directed Rise.

An explosion apparently targeting a mosque in Pakistan’s northwestern city of Parachinar, in a remote area bordering Afghanistan, killed at least 22 people on Friday and wounded dozens, officials said. There was no immediate claim of responsibility but the blast, which took place as people gathered for Friday prayers near the women’s entrance of a Shia mosque in the central bazaar, follows a series of attacks this year.

A FORMER military man who repeatedly raped a woman he met online as her children slept in a nearby room, taunting and humiliating her for more than two hours, has been jailed in WA for 11 years.
Rodney Charles Rayner, 49, communicated with the 51-year-old victim on Facebook and by telephone before meeting for the first time at his home in November 2015, the WA District Court heard on Friday.
He subjected her to a ruthless, brutal and sustained sex attack, causing bruising and swelling all over her face and body, Judge Christopher Stevenson said.
The woman begged him to stop, yet he showed no pity, and the judge said Rayner’s actions were sadistic.
He said Rayner maximised the woman’s humiliation and degradation, and took pleasure in her distress.

Any anxiety that this spin-off of The Good Wife might not be up to the job was dispelled in a two-part opener that was, simply, powerful and brilliant TV
So I approach The Good Fight (More4), the TGW spin-off show fans have been baying for, with a feeling of rising anxiety that I am going to enjoy it. Imagine my gloom after the opening double bill, which plays out like the perfect superhero origin story but with more decanters and depositions. It’s brilliant. Not only will I have to watch every last second of it over the coming weeks, but the spectre of TGW (I dare not type its name) looms ever larger, reminding me of what I am now undoubtedly missing.
The Good Fight stars Christine Baranski as Diane Lockhart, partner in (deep breath) Lockhart, Deckler, Gussman, Lee, Lyman, Gilbert, Lurie, Kagan, Tannebaum & Associates, the top Chicago law firm where we (well, not me, obviously) left her at the end of The Good Wife’s seventh and final season in 2016.

TOP Gear’s driver The Stig has claimed a new Guinness World Record as he managed to drive a restored vintage dodgem car to speeds of over 160km/h.
The BBC Two program’s “tame racing driver” was tasked with getting behind the wheel of a souped-up 1960s dodgem to celebrate the return of the motoring show.

South Korea’s disgraced former President Park Geun-hye was arrested and jailed Friday over the corruption allegations that already ended her tumultuous four-year rule and prompted an election to find a successor.
A convoy of vehicles, including a black sedan carrying Park, entered a detention facility near Seoul before dawn after the Seoul Central District Court granted a prosecutors’ request to arrest her.
Many Park supporters waved national flags and shouted “president” as Park’s car entered the facility. An opponent held up a mock congratulatory ribbon with flowers that read “Park Geun-hye, congratulations for entering prison. Come out as a human being after 30 years.”
Prosecutors can detain Park for up to 20 days, during which they are expected to formally charge her and have her jailed during the next several months of court procedures. A district court in South Korea normally issues a ruling within six months of an indictment.
