Man charged over brother murder seeks bail


A Perth man charged with being an accessory to the murder of his younger brother has indicated he intends to apply for bail.

Joshua Douglas Fisher-Turner appeared in Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court via videolink from Hakea Prison on Wednesday, and his lawyer secured a bail application hearing on July 12, arguing his client had already been in custody for eight months.

The 27-year-old is in the same remand facility as his father Ernest Fisher, 66, who is accused of murdering his other son Matthew Kyle Fisher-Turner.

The 24-year-old was found buried in the backyard of the family's Parmelia home on October 27, 2016, 10 days after he was reported missing to police.

The victim's sister Hannah Jayde Fisher-Turner, 20, who has also been charged with being an accessory, appeared via videolink from a separate prison and didn't signal an intention to apply for bail.

She and her father will next appear in court on August 30.
