Man Accused Of Price-Purcell Murder Doesn't Face Court

A second man accused of the murder of missing Brisbane man Sam Price-Purcell has had his case mentioned in rural Queensland court.

Owen James Harris, 29, did not appear at Roma Magistrates Court on Monday, two days after he was charged with the murder of Price-Purcell, who went missing in 2015.

There was no application for bail and Harris' matter was adjourned to be heard in Toowoomba Magistrates Court on July 5.

The Roma's man's co-accused, Michael Jay Evans, from Leyburn, will appear in the same court on September 10 after being charged last week.

Both men were also charged with misconduct with a corpse, while Evans, 36, faces a further allegation of arson of a vehicle.

Police have said more people were involved in the disappearance of Mr Price-Purcell, 25, who was last seen after leaving the Brisbane suburb of Mitchelton in February 2015.

He was seen getting into a distinctive yellow Holden Commodore SS sedan, similar to a car seized by police and put through forensic testing late last month.
