THE two men who are accused of the four-decade-old cold case murder of the three McCulkin women have had their case mentioned briefly in court.

Warwick man Vincent O'Dempsey, 77, and Maryborough man Garry Reginald Dubois, 67, were charged last December over the 1974 disappearance of Barbara May McCulkin, 34, and her two daughters, Vicki Maree McCulkin, 13, and Barbara Leanne McCulkin, 11.

Both men have been charged with a host of offences including murder and deprivation of liberty.

The three McCulkin women have not been seen since they disappeared on January 16 from their Highgate Hill home in Brisbane more than four decades ago.

The bodies of the three women have never been recovered.

Magistrate Paul Kluck adjourned the matter until March 30.
