Worker Pleads Not Guilty after Actions Lead to Co-worker’s Death

A court has heard that as a worker on a Queensland construction site lay injured, his co-worker and alleged killer Neil Edward Norris was beginning a cover-up.
The injured worker Peter Tullett died after he was hit in the head by a pair of 1.2 tonne shears which detached from an excavator, driven by the accused, Mr Norris.
Prosecutors said Norris failed to attached a safety pin to the vehicle’s dipping arm which led to the accident at the Brisbane construction site and subsequent death in April 2017.
Mr Norris also repeatedly lied to authorities about the placing of the equipment, with crown prosecutor Phil McCarthy calling his behaviour criminal.
