Accused killer Baden-Clay seeks Legal Aid funding: reports

ACCUSED  wife killer Gerard Baden-Clay may have sought Legal Aid funding after parting ways with his high-profile solicitors, according to reports.

Mr Baden-Clay approached Legal Aid Queensland after his Gold Coast-based solicitors Jacobson Mahony Lawyers withdrew their services, News Ltd reported on Tuesday.

Solicitor Darren Mahony could not be reached by Fairfax Media for comment on Tuesday morning.

A spokeswoman for Legal Aid Queensland declined to comment on the reports, saying it was against the law to reveal whether an individual had applied for funding. 

Gerard Baden-Clay, the great-grandson of famed Scout movement founder Robert Baden-Powell, is charged with the murder of his wife Allison at their home in the leafy Brisbane hamlet of Brookfield in April last year.
