TRADIE Christopher Frank remains in custody after being charged with the murder of a Lockyer Valley man.

In a brief mention before Ipswich Magistrates Court on Monday, 34-year-old Christopher Warren Arthur Frank from Laidley faced one charge of committing the murder of Troy Bellingham, 40, at Lockyer Waters on Friday, March 13.
