Bail plea for man accused of bashing stranger to death

ONE of the three men accused of bashing a stranger to death outside a Maroochydore nightclub is preparing for a bail application.

Matthew John Hill's application has twice been listed in the Brisbane Supreme Court but has been adjourned both times.

He, Blake Nathan Goldsworthy and Wade Leigh Goldsworthy are accused of murdering Wayne Andrew Dover on November 30 last year outside The Factory, at Sunshine Plaza.

An affidavit Mr Hill filed in the court registry detailed his personal history and listed his plans should he be granted release.

He said he intended to continue living with his father at Coolum and would abide any conditions imposed on him.

Mr Hill said he would report to the Maroochydore police station as often as required and would abide any curfew imposed on him.

He said he would continue working as a tiler, a profession that earns him more than $1000 net each week.

The 28-year-old, whose birthday was within days of the alleged murder, went to Coolum High School, graduating in 2003.

He said he had a close relationship with his mother and his older brother, a finance broker.

The Goldsworthy brothers are descendants of bushranger Ned Kelly.
