Seven News earlier reported he was in a critical condition.

Queensland Corrective Services confirmed a person was taken to hospital after an altercation with another prisoner.

"QCS can confirm a prisoner was transported to Princess Alexandra Hospital from Wolston Correctional Centre this afternoon with suspected head injuries," the spokesman said.

"The injuries are a result of an altercation with another prisoner.

"CSIU (Corrective Services Investigation Unit) will be advised."

Sikorsky is accused of the murder of his 16-year-old girlfriend Larissa Beilby at Buccan, south of Brisbane, in June 2018.

Larissa Beilby’s body was found in a barrel in the back of a ute at Stapylton.

Ms Beilby had been reported missing by her father one day before her body was found in a barrel in the back of a ute, which had been dumped at Stapylton.

Sikorsky was committed to stand trial in the Brisbane Supreme Court on charges of murder, torture, deprivation of liberty and interfering with a corpse of Ms Beilby.
