THE man accused of murdering Queensland schoolboy Daniel Morcombe wants to live in Brisbane if he is granted bail while awaiting trial.

Brett Peter Cowan, 42, was arrested in August and charged with murder, child stealing, deprivation of liberty, indecent treatment of a child and interfering with a corpse.

The charges came after an eight-year investigation into the disappearance of Daniel, who was 13 when he vanished while waiting for a bus on the Sunshine Coast in 2003.
