Baden-Clay brings in new lawyers to fight murder case

ACCUSED  wife killer Gerard Baden-Clay has enlisted one of Brisbane's most high-profile criminal defence teams to represent him at his upcoming murder trial.

Fairfax Media understands Mr Baden-Clay will be represented by solicitor Peter Shields and barrister Michael Byrne QC as he fights the murder charge in the Supreme Court.

Mr Shields, a former police officer, is one of few accredited criminal specialist solicitors in Queensland.

Mr Baden-Clay, the great-grandson of famed Scout movement founder Robert Baden-Powell, is charged with the murder of his wife Allison at their home in the leafy Brisbane hamlet of Brookfield in April last year.

Mrs Baden-Clay's body was found on the banks of Kholo Creek on April 30, 10 days after she was reported missing.
