Woman banned from Caloundra for allegedly killing amputee

A WOMAN who allegedly pushed her amputee neighbour from his wheelchair, killing him, has been banned from Caloundra.

Former Caloundra woman Lisa Michelle Davies, who now lives in Cooroy, appeared in the Maroochydore Magistrates Court yesterday charged over the manslaughter of John Thomas Menelaws, 73.

Magistrate Cliff Taylor granted the 35-year-old an extension for bail, which means that while court proceedings are continuing she is free to live on the Sunshine Coast, except Caloundra.

The exclusion zone was outlined as part of Magistrate Taylor's strict set of conditions, which include steering clear of Caloundra and having no contact with witnesses.
