The 36-year-old Scottsdale man accused of killing teenager Shyanne-Lee Tatnell is set to return to court in Launceston today.

Christopher Mark Jordan is yet to enter a plea against four charges: one count of murder, and three in relation to contraband drugs and firearms allegedly located at his property.

The 36-year-old father of one was arrested in July last year after the 14 year-old Burnie teenager’s remains were found on a bush track at Nabowla, around three months after she disappeared.

Jordan appeared at the Launceston Magistrates Court via video link last month, his defence requesting a further adjournment due to missing evidence.
