A man charged with murdering a woman in California Gully in February has been granted permission to access electronic files he says are essential to his defence.
Adam Margolis appeared via videolink for a committal mention hearing in the Bendigo Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
Magistrate Sarah Leighfield ordered that police provide these materials to Margolis and his defence counsel, with defence lawyer Amit Malik to liaise with the informant to identify the materials of priority.
Margolis is accused of killing a 20-year-old woman between February 24 and 25, 2018.
The young woman’s body was discovered overnight between February 25 and 26 when emergency services attended a Butler Street address.
Margolis was charged on March 2.
He remains in custody and will next face Bendigo Magistrates’ Court on October 3.
