Charmaine Blessington, who's accused of being an accessory to murder, has been granted bail

A woman accused of helping an alleged killer escape has been granted bail in a Brisbane court.

Charmaine Elizabeth Blessington, 36, is accused of being an accessory after the fact to murder, over the stabbing death of former soldier Nathan Frazer at Murrumba Downs on July 12.

She's accused of taking Lee Michael Hillier to a patch of bushland after he allegedly murdered Mr Frazer, who was stabbed in the back seat of her car.

Blessington's defence barrister Damian Walsh argued she was unaware Mr Frazer had been stabbed when she drove Hillier away, instead believing he had been punched.

After being attacked, Mr Frazer had "stood his ground and spoke to another person outside the car" as Blessington and Hillier drove off, Mr Walsh told Brisbane Magistrates Court on Thursday.

A prosecutor alleged she helped Hillier hide knowing he had allegedly committed a serious crime.

Blessington knew he was armed with a gun and large knife "that he had down the side of his pants", the prosecution alleged.

Hillier told her after the incident, "I got him", the court heard.

Blessington is the second woman granted bail after being charged with being an accessory after the fact of Mr Frazer's alleged murder.

Helen Anderson, 40, was released on Saturday.

Anderson is accused of assisting Hillier a day after the incident and sent a text saying, "I want to help", the court heard on Thursday.

Hillier was arrested following a four-hour siege at a hotel in Brisbane's north a day after the alleged murder.

Mr Frazer died from wounds to his chest and face on a Murrumba Downs road, north of Brisbane, after the early morning incident.

Anderson and Blessington are prohibited from communicating with each other as part of their bail conditions.
