Murder accused has his case adjourned by Toowoomba court.

THE case against murder accused Max Peter Smith has been adjourned for three months while he is psychiatrically assessed.
 

Smith, who turned 20 in custody earlier this month, is charged with murder arising from the death of friend Jake James Lasker, 19, in Toowoomba on November 7 last year.
 

Police claim Mr Lasker was stabbed to death at his Rockville home.
 

Smith has not been required to enter any plea to the charge of murder and has been held in custody since his arrest the day after Mr Lasker's death.
 

Smith was not present in Toowoomba Magistrates Court when his matter was mentioned briefly this morning.
 

Legal Aid Queensland solicitor Kyna Morice, for Smith, asked the court for a three month adjournment so a psychiatric assessment of her client could be done.
 

Magistrate Bruce Schemioneck granted her request and adjourned the case for committal mention back in the same court on May 29 and remanded Smith in custody.
