Alleged torture victim may need months more treatment
A WOMAN allegedly tortured and wrapped in a blanket is still in hospital, and is expected to stay there for at least two more months.
Former professional soccer player Jeromy Lee Harris, 41, was charged last month after co-accused Nicholas John Crilley was allegedly seen leaving a Spring Hill hotel with the woman "wrapped in a sheet or a blanket".
The woman's condition was mentioned during a brief hearing in Brisbane Magistrates Court on Monday.
Police found the comatose woman on July 2.
Mr Harris faced charges including torture and unlawful deprivation of liberty, unlawful supply of a drug to Mr Crilley and unlawful supply to the alleged torture victim.
The drug involved was Xanax, Brisbane Supreme Court heard last month.
But Mr Harris's lawyer Tony Glynn told the supreme court: "There is simply no evidence that connects him [to] the offending."
Mr Harris was bailed to a Yeppoon address on July 20. Mr Crilley is remanded in custody.
The case was adjourned for a further mention on September 25.
