HEADLESS TORSO: Woman faces murder trial

THE woman accused of murdering and dismembering a man, whose headless torso was found on the side of the road at Cedar Pocket nearly five years ago, will face trial in Brisbane Supreme Court in July.

The man, George Gerbic, 66, was killed between September 3 and 20, 2013.

His headless torso was found in the grass near Cedar Pocket Road.

Lindy Yvonne Williams was Mr Gerbic's fiancée at the time he was killed.

The "headless torso case" set a challenge for investigators, faced with identifying the body.

Ms Williams was charged with murder following a 10-month investigation, which included an extensive search of Mr Gerbic's Tanawah property on the Sunshine Coast.

She faces trial on July 16 on a charge of murdering Mr Gerbic, a Sunshine Coast businessman, in a domestic violence offence, and of misconduct with a corpse.
