Man accused of murdering Qld schoolgirl Jayde Kendall in court

The young man accused of killing Gatton schoolgirl Jayde Kendall will have his matter mentioned in Ipswich Magistrates Court today.

Brenden Bennetts, 19, has been charged with one count each of murder and interfering with a corpse following the discovery of Miss Kendall’s body in a paddock in Upper Tenthill.

Miss Kendall was last seen on August 14 getting into a red Toyota Corolla outside Lockyer District High School. She was reported missing the following day, which sparked a major police search across Queensland.


Mr Bennetts remains in custody at Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre at Wacol.
