Martin did not appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court Tuesday morning however his lawyer Jon Ide asked the court for a brief of evidence be made available.

Magistrate Michael Quinn ordered the evidence to be disclosed by February 23 and adjourned the matter until March 15.

According to court documents Martin, a maximum security prisoner, struck Sikorsky to the head.

 

Larissa Beilby was reported as being missing from Sandgate before her body was found in a barrel.

At the time of his death Sikorsky was awaiting trial for the murder of his girlfriend, Ms Beilby, in June 2018.

Sikorsky was also facing charges of torture, deprivation of liberty and interfering with a corpse of Ms Beilby, who had been reported missing by her father the day before her body was found inside a barrel in the back of a ute dumped in Stapylton, south of Brisbane

The 37-year-old remained on the run for two days, sparking a massive manhunt that ended with his arrest after police surrounded a unit at Alexandra Headland.

At a committal hearing a highly experienced forensic pathologist gave evidence that she had never seen injuries like those on Ms Beilby's body.
