Grandmother murder case transferred from Toowoomba court

THE murder case against Toowoomba man Ian Phillip Hannaford has been transferred to the Warwick jurisdiction.

Hannaford, 58, is charged with murder arising from the disappearance of his former partner, Warwick grandmother Gail Lynch who has not been seen since leaving her Guy St unit on July 3 last year.

The case was mentioned before Toowoomba Magistrates Court this morning with Hannaford's solicitor Kyna Morice asking for a four-week adjournment.

Ms Morice said Toowoomba barrister Robbie Davies had been briefed in the case but he was yet to go through the material.

However, Magistrate Bruce Schemioneck said the case originated in Warwick and transferred it back to the Warwick Magistrates Court for mention on March 12.

Hannaford, who has been held in custody since his arrest in Toowoomba in July last year, was not in court for the brief mention of the matter.

He has not as yet been required to enter any plea to the charge of murder.
