Murder charge after taxi rank fight
A man is facing a murder charge following an early morning altercation at a taxi rank that left another man dead in north Queensland.
A verbal dispute occurred at 2.20am on Saturday at a cab rank on Edith Street, Innisfail, police said.
It then escalated into a fight with one of the men allegedly punching the other to the side of his head multiple times.
A 28-year-old man died at the scene.
Police have since charged a 30-year-old Innisfail man with murder.
He appeared in Innisfail Magistrates Court on Saturday and was remanded in custody, police said.
He is due to reappear at court on January 11.
