Gerard Baden-Clay murder trial begins in Brisbane

Date

The long-awaited trial of accused wife killer Gerard Baden-Clay gets underway in Brisbane on Tuesday.

The jury selection process is expected to take some time, with potential jurors to face a range of questions to ensure they bring no bias or history with the Baden-Clay family to the trial.

The 43-year-old former real estate agent is accused of murdering his wife Allison, 43, in April 2012.

The body of the mother of three was found on a creek bank at Anstead in Brisbane's west on April 30 that year.

The discovery was made 10 days after Baden-Clay reported his wife missing from their home in the nearby suburb of Brookfield. He was arrested and charged with murder in June 2012.

He has pleaded not guilty.

As many as 72 witnesses could be called to give evidence during the trial, which is expected to run for up to four weeks in the Supreme Court.
