Qld man extradited over Cairns stabbing

A second man accused of threatening to kill a 12-year-old boy and repeatedly stabbing his father in the yard of their Cairns home four years ago has been extradited from Victoria.

The 35-year-old Edmonton man was arrested on Thursday and extradited to Queensland on the weekend.

He was refused bail and will appear in Cairns Magistrates Court on Monday charged with six offences, including assault occasioning bodily harm while armed and kidnapping for ransom.

His co-accused was extradited from NSW on May 16 and is due to face charges in the Cairns Magistrates Court on August 1.

Police allege threats were made to kill the boy and his 60-year-old father was repeatedly stabbed during an attempted robbery of their Westcourt home in 2014.
