Court hears Ulverstone murder charge

Ulverstone's Colin William Drake remains in custody and did not apply for bail in an appearance in court in Devonport on a murder charge.

The 35 year old is accused of the stabbing murder of Gabbie Marshall, the 23 year old Queenslander who was found dead in the Ulverstone home of her friend in the early hours of Tuesday.

They are not believed to have been known to each other.

No plea was entered and the case is adjourned to July 15th.

$50,000 is the target in an online fundraiser for Gabbie's 6 year old daughter.
