Two to face court over child found dead on minibus
TWO people have been charged with manslaughter following the death of a three-year-old boy inside a minibus at Edmonton last Tuesday.
The boy was allegedly collected from a Mount Sheridan address around 9am in order to attend daycare.
It is alleged he was left inside the vehicle unattended for a number of hours before being located dead on Stokes Street, Edmonton about 3.15pm.
The alleged driver of the bus, a 45-year-old Bentley Park man and a 34-year-old female employee from Manunda who was also on the bus have been charged with one count each of manslaughter.
They are due to face Cairns Magistrates Court tomorrow.
