Police prepare full brief in workplace manslaughter case

POLICE have sought a two-month adjournment to prepare a full brief of evidence for a Clermont workplace death. 

Nathan Day, 29, was charged last month with manslaughter over the death of Jason Garrels, 20, four years ago.

Brisbane Magistrates Court heard today it would take six to eight weeks to complete a full brief of evidence to handover to Mr Day's legal team. 

Mr Garrels was electrocuted nine days into his new job as a trade's assistant for builder Daytona Trading.

He was working on apartments being built at Clermont, where his family was living, in 2012.

Mr Day was the electrical contractor on the site of a unit development complex at McDonald Flat Rd.

The Caboolture man is the director of Cold Spark Pty Ltd.

Mr Day was charged after a Mackay coroner referred the death to police to investigate criminal charges following a coronial inquest last year. 

The case was adjourned to October 17. 

Mr Day remains on bail. - ARM Newsdesk
