Cohrs case in August

A HEARING to determine whether Paul Cohrs will stand trial for his mother’s murder has been pushed back a month.

The 59-year-old did not appear by video link before the Mildura Magistrates’ Court yesterday for the very brief mention.

Cohrs has been charged with one count of murder following the shooting death of his mother on October 30 last year.

The accused’s brother, Raymond Cohrs, was shot dead at a property at Rufus River, west of Wentworth, on the same day, however charges have not yet been laid by NSW Police.

Two weeks ago the committal hearing, which is likely to take a day and a half, was set for early July.

However Cohrs will now face court on August 13 for the rescheduled hearing.
