Brisbane bus attacker hit with 3 additional attempted murder charges

The man accused of setting fire to and killing a Brisbane bus driver has been hit with an additional three attempted murder charges.

The 48-year-old is already facing eleven counts of attempted murder, one count of murder and one count of arson.

Police said the new charges were laid as a result of officers identifying and speaking with three additional bus passengers.


The horrifying incident occurred around 9.00am on October 28, when a man allegedly threw an incendiary item at the driver of a bus as passengers were boarding on Beaudesert Road at Moorooka.

The driver, a 29-year-old man, died at the scene.

His attacker is due to face Brisbane Magistrates Court today on the additional charges.
