A 38-year-old man has been remanded in custody after being charged with the murder over the death of a man at Cairns shopping centre yesterday morning.

Nicholas George Boak was charged overnight after being taken into custody a short time after the stabbing death of 51-year-old Michael Eaton at the Cairns Central Shopping Centre yesterday morning.

Mr Boak was not present in Cairns Magistrates Court this morning when the matter was heard.

Duty lawyer Natasha Jackson said she spoke with Mr Boak at the Cairns watch house and that he wanted to attend court in person for the hearing.

However, police prosecutor Codi Dalley told the court watch house staff had concerns about moving Mr Boak to the courtroom.

“He presents an extreme risk to watch house staff,” she told the court.

“We would require extra time and a specialised team to move him.”

Magistrate Kevin Priestly initially directed Mr Boak be presented to the court via video link but, after further concern was raised by Ms Dalley about moving Mr Boak within the watch house, that direction was rescinded.

Ms Dalley then told the court she would require extra time to provide a brief of evidence as there was a significant amount of forensic evidence to be examined.

Magistrate Priestly directed the brief of evidence be tendered to the court by November 24.

The matter was adjourned to return to court on December 15.
