Attempted murder stabbing case set for pre-trial

THE case against a Toowoomba man charged with attempted murder is to be set down for a pre-trial hearing.

Aaron James Cant, 24, has been charged with attempted murder arising from an incident in Harristown earlier this year in which a 25-year-old man was allegedly stabbed.

He has been held in custody since the June 26 incident and was not in Toowoomba Magistrates Court yesterday when the matter was briefly mentioned.

His solicitor Claire Graham told the court barrister Scott Lynch had been briefed in the matter and would be seeking to cross examine one witness at a committal hearing.

Ms Graham therefore asked for an adjournment so those arrangements could be made.

Police accuse Cant in the stabbing of the man which allegedly occurred at a James St unit on June 26.

Cant has not as yet been required to enter any plea to the charge.

Magistrate Graham Lee remanded Cant in custody and adjourned the case for mention back in the same court on December 18.
