Accused killer charged over second woman
THE man accused of murdering a Brisbane teenager whose body was found in a barrel has been charged with the attempted murder of a second woman.
Zlatko Sikorsky, 34, has been charged with two counts of attempted murder, torture and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
The charges relate to a woman aged 33, who was allegedly attacked in early June.
The new charges are unconnected with Larissa Beilby, the teenage girl whose remains were found two weeks ago.
Sikorsky was already in custody charged with the murder of the 16-year-old Queensland schoolgirl.
Ms Beilbyâ€™s decomposing body was found in a barrel in the back of a black ute outside a Logan City caravan park two weeks ago.
The girl had reportedly been in a relationship with Sikorsky after leaving her family home and moving into public housing.
Following a police hunt, the ute with Ms Beilbyâ€™s remains was located under a tarpaulin and Sikorsky was then allegedly on the run.
He was arrested in Alexandra Headland last week after barricading himself inside a unit for 28 hours.
Police also charged Sikorsky with misconduct with a corpse in relation to Ms Beilby.
