Son charged after woman’s body found at house

The son of a woman whose body was found at a house at Taigum on Brisbane's northside last Saturday has been charged with her manslaughter.

Police said the man was taken into custody and charged this afternoon following a homicide investigation earlier this week.

The Courier-Mail understands the man has been charged on the grounds of negligence.

Police will allege the 53-year-old woman's death was initially treated as a medical episode before further details emerged, prompting the manslaughter charge.

The matter will be heard in court tomorrow and the man has been denied bail.
