Man stabbed to death in a park for just 50c, court told

A MAN has been fatally stabbed in the chest and a teenager charged with murder after an alleged robbery in a park.

And police have said the alleged attack netted only 50c.

Forty-nine-year-old Mark Anthony Hemmings was stabbed to death on Monday night.

Jamie Lloyd Murray, 19, faced Caboolture Magistrates Court yesterday afternoon charged with his murder.

The teenager allegedly confronted Mr Hemmings and his partner at a park in Bluebell St at Caboolture about 9pm.

It was alleged that Mr Murray was armed with a bike seat.

Mr Murray struggled with Mr Hemmings before stabbing him in the chest, it was alleged.

He then made off on a bicycle, police alleged.

People took to social media to express concerns after hearing loud screams in the area on Monday night.

Police were immediately called.

They conducted a thorough search of the area.

A police spokesman said Mr Murray was found and taken into custody.

Mr Murray appeared in handcuffs in court yesterday at the request of the prosecution due to the serious nature of the charges.

He was also charged with two counts of armed robbery.

Police told the court that the robbery was over only 50c.

Mr Murray was remanded in custody.

A committal mention is scheduled for February 8.

He is not required to appear on this date.
