All Nine cases were mentioned in the Toowoomba Magistrates Court this morning (Monday).

No one appeared and there have been no applications for bail made. The cases have been adjourned until tomorrow.

Police say more charges are likely to be laid in relation to the matter.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Lawyer Kevin Rose says he’s representing five of the accused and says more charges are now likely.

“I haven’t been told that but given there’s a deceased person there is a possibility.”
