Man accused of killing Gold Coast cheerleader skips court mention

The man accused of murdering his cheerleader ex-girlfriend has decided not to show up to Southport Court on Tuesday, where his case was briefly mentioned.

Jayden Moorea, who was controversially released on bail last month, was represented by his lawyer in court today.

The 45-year-old, who was formally known as Dan Shearin, is charged with the murder of Gold Coast Titans cheerleader Breeana Robinson, who fell to her death from an 11th storey balcony in Southport back in 2013.

The matter was adjourned and will return to court on March 26 for a brief mention before a planned committal hearing on April 9.

Moorea’s lawyer, Chris Hannay, said they will be fighting all the charges.

“Strenuously defending obviously the murder charge and the other matters that are currently before the court which are the stalking charges and the two applications for a domestic violence order,” Hannay said outside court.

He described the charges as “fanciful”.

When asked about the possibility of other victims coming forward with allegations against Moorea, Hannay said they weren’t worried.

“Bring it on,” Hannay said.

“We look forward to it.”

‘Bree’s Army’ was again in attendance for the mention and will be holding a rally outside of Southport Court at 12.00pm today, alongside domestic violence organisation, The Red Rose Foundation.

“We will be having a rally here today to honour Bree and to have a few of the victims and people here to support Bree,” Bree’s aunt Janine Mackney said outside court.

She also said she will continue her fight to have Moorea’s bail revoked, with a supporting petition now reaching around 26,000 signatures.

“I’m still trying to get the Attorney General Yvette D’Ath to speak with me and to get his bail revoked. He should not be out on the streets.”

Janine said she will never be giving up her fight for justice.

“I’m never going away. I’ve proven that. It’s been six long years and I’ve never gone away and I will keep fighting until he’s behind bars,” she said.
