NZ resident accused of Brisbane socialite's murder

October 24, 2015 6:20 pm

Thomas Chris Lang appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court yesterday, a day after he was charged with murdering Maureen Boyce.

The accused murderer, who is reportedly Boyce’s ex-boyfriend, appeared close to tears in court and at one point slumped forward and rested his forehead on his hands.

The 63-year-old was remanded in custody until his next court appearance on 30 November.

Brisbane police said Boyce’s body was found in her penthouse on Thursday and a post-mortem has revealed she died from a single stab wound to the abdomen.

They said Lang had been staying with Boyce. She was a successful model in the 1960s and 70s, then going by her maiden name Maureen Madden.
