Son charged after woman’s body found at house
The son of a woman whose body was found at a house at Taigum on Brisbane's northside last Saturday has been charged with her manslaughter.
Police said the man was taken into custody and charged this afternoon following a homicide investigation earlier this week.
The Courier-Mail understands the man has been charged on the grounds of negligence.
Police will allege the 53-year-old woman's death was initially treated as a medical episode before further details emerged, prompting the manslaughter charge.
The matter will be heard in court tomorrow and the man has been denied bail.
