Eunji Ban’s accused killer committed for trial

STATEMENTS from about 70 people have been listed to be used as evidence against the former Ipswich man charged with the murder of South Korean woman Eunji Ban.

Alex Reuben McEwan has been charged with the November 2014 murder of Ms Ban in Brisbane's Spring Hill.

Mr McEwan faced Brisbane Magistrates Court on Monday via video link. The matter was committed to a Supreme Court trial at a date to be fixed.

Mr McEwan did not apply for bail.

The court heard Crown prosecutors have evidence from 67 people that may be used during the trial.

Mr McEwan's barrister Edwin Whitton told the court his client conceded there was a case to answer.

"Your honour on behalf of Mr McEwan I concede there is a case for the charge before you and consent to the matter being sent to the Supreme Court without your honour considering the evidence," he said.

When given the chance to speak Mr McEwan instead asked his lawyer to comment. Mr Whitton simply asked for the matter to proceed to a trial.

The matter was adjourned to the Supreme Court at a date to be decided. - ARM NEWSDESK
