He appeared at Maroochydore Magistrates Court on Monday and was released on bail.

In documents tendered in court and viewed by the Daily, police have alleged Mr Catterall and Ms Green were in a relationship.

Ms Green told the police she tried to break up with Mr Catterall who in his fury, took the urn and left the house.

Police will allege he then threatened to destroy the ashes.

Magistrate Rod Madsen released the 29-year-old on strict conditions and ordered him to reappear in court on October 12.
