Man Faces Court For Fatal Brisbane Alleged One Punch Attack

A man has been remanded in custody accused of fatally punching a Brisbane father of seven on Saturday.

Wayne Andrew Hearn, 38, did not apply for bail when he appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

He was arrested on Tuesday - following more than three days on the run - and charged with one count of unlawful striking causing death.

He is accused of striking Brisbane father Timothy Lang near a South Brisbane hotel on Saturday morning.

The 48-year-old died in a Brisbane hospital on Monday after his life support was turned off.

Hearn gestured and smiled to the public gallery as he was led out of the dock.

The matter is set to return to court on October 31.
