ACCUSED LEISL SMITH KILLER TO STAND TRIAL

A man charged over the murder of missing Wallarah woman Leisl Smith has been committed to stand trial in Sydney’s Supreme Court.

James Scott Church was arrested and charged last October, more than six years after 23-year-old Smith vanished from Tuggerah Railway Station.

Church fronted Wyong Local Court today – his bail will continue with strict night-time curfew until the trial begins in February.
