Man In Pimpama Murder-Suicide Released On Bail Two Weeks Ago
A man who allegedly murdered his estranged wife before committing suicide in Pimpama was only released on bail on domestic violence charges a fortnight ago.
The 52-year-old man, David Bradford, is said to have broken into the family home on Tuesday morning and stabbed Teresa Bradford to death in front of three young children.
He then allegedly committed suicide.
Bradford had been charged with four domestic violence offences after an incident on November 28 2016 and had been in police custody until two weeks ago, when he was released on January 12.
He was not scheduled to face a committal hearing until March.
The offences include choking, assault occasioning bodily harm, deprivation of liberty and common assault.
The man was released on the condition that he would stay at least 100m away from his estranged wife, with the exception of court appearances.
He was also required to live in a inner-city Brisbane hotel and had to report to police.
One friend of Teresa spoke to The Courier Mail of her shock and grief.
“The mother has been trying to get help because of the husband,” a family friend said.
“She had nothing for her kids, no school things, so we had been helping to raise money for books and everything they needed.
“The only thing the mother wanted was for her husband not to find them.
“Well he did and this has now happened.
"Rest in peace to a beautiful lady and I hope someone looks after those kids.”
