ALLEGED DOG BEHEADER UNFIT FOR TRIAL

A man has been found unfit to stand trial over allegations he stabbed a harbourmaster before assaulting a woman and decapitating her dog.

Bradley Mark Weir, 43, was arrested in February last year and charged with a string of offences including attempted murder, going armed to cause fear and animal cruelty.

Police alleged he used a knife to stab the harbourmaster at Hope Island, on the Gold Coast, rupturing his diaphragm, spleen and one of the main arteries to his heart.

The harbourmaster survived.
