RAYMOND Robert Millar has been committed to stand trial in the Brisbane Supreme Court on murder, grievous bodily harm and drug charges, after a committal hearing in the Maroochydore Magistrates Court last Thursday.

The court was told a bloodied, broken shovel was discovered leaning against a shed at Coolum Caravan Park just metres from where fatally injured Jeremy Michael Baird was found in December 2010.

Mr Millar is accused of using the shovel to murder the 41-year-old in broad daylight.

Several witnesses told the court they saw blood coming from a cut on Mr Baird's head.

Mr Baird was taken to hospital where he remained for seven days before he died.

Witnesses told the court they saw Mr Baird sprawled on his back on a road on the afternoon of the incident.

Dugald Wishart said he saw Mr Millar drag a barely conscious Mr Baird several metres towards a grassed area beside the road exit.

"I saw the man on the ground being kicked quite hard in the back," he said.

Another witness, Alan Bishop, told how he helped Mr Millar move Mr Baird from the road to a grassed area near a gated park exit to David Low Way. Mr Bishop said he thought Mr Baird was drunk and helped stand him up with the support of Mr Millar.

Police witnesses told the court they found a shovel head spattered with blood at the scene of the alleged murder.
