M’boro man to stand trial on four counts of rape
A MARYBOROUGH man who allegedly raped a woman four times in nine months last year has been committed to stand trial.
The 45-year-old, who cannot be named to avoid identifying the alleged victim, appeared in the Maryborough Magistrates Court on Thursday.
He declined to say anything and did not enter a plea.
Police prosecutor Sergeant Kath Stagoll tendered evidence to the court that included witness statements, interview recordings, photographs and several statements from the alleged victim.
The case will now go to trial in a sitting of the Maryborough District Court, at a date yet to be set.
He is charged with four counts of rape from March 1 to December 1, 2012.
