Manslaughter charge after Qld campground fight

BRISBANE man has been charged with killing his best mate more than a year after he died after an alleged drunken fight at a Far North camp ground.

The two men and their partner's were on an extended driving holiday up the Queensland coast last year according to police and were staying at Chili Beach, north of Lockhart River, in July when an argument broke out.

It is alleged the pair got into a physical struggle before one of them, Camira man Robbie Irvine, 46, died at the scene.

Far North police Det Insp Geoff Marsh said it was as a result of pathology tests and other investigations that a charge was laid.

A 48-year-old man has been charged with manslaughter and is due to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on September 4.
