March 8 - Forty people picketed in front of Beenleigh Magistrates Court to protest against the murder of Elma Albaracin Young, the pregnant 42 year-old Filipina nurse whose body was found dumped in Munruben on February 21.
IN the early hours of Sunday, April 4, 1993, Bruce Hughes was in his former partner's unit in the Brisbane suburb of Morningside. Deaf and mute since birth, Mila Bordador Wills, a 36 year-old Filipina, could not scream when he lashed out at her in the bedroom. Neighbours later said they heard nothing.
ATTENDING court is not good for your health. Friends and relatives of Elma Young who were present at the trial of Paul Young in Brisbane's Supreme Court were continuously suffering from headaches and some from stress due not only to the claustrophobic environment of the courtroom but also because of the revolting legal battle they were witnessing.
