Goodstart toddler death committal: witness to give evidence
THIRTEEN witnesses are expected to give evidence in the committal of the woman charged with manslaughter of a toddler on a Goodstart minibus in February.
Co-accused Dionne Grills, 34, and Michael Lewis, 45, charged with manslaughter, had bail extended after their matters were heard in the Cairns Magistrates court on Wednesday.
In February, three-year-old Maliq Nicholas Floyd Namok-Malamoo was found dead in a Goodstart Early Learning vehicle in Edmonton.
During the brief mention Magistrate Joseph Pinder expected evidence from 13 witnesses, in the case of Ms Grills, to take two days to hear. Committal dates of January 4 and 5 were set. Defence lawyer Sharon Giardina represented second co-accused Mr Lewis. Mr Lewis' appearance would be excused at a committal mention slated for October 7.
