    THE man accused of beheading his neighbour stared straight ahead of him as he appeared in court after spending six days hiding out on Darwin's fringe.

    Jonathon Andrew Stenberg, 46, sat in the dock at Darwin Magistrates Court barefoot and in handcuffs surrounded by four elite Territory police officers and an auxiliary.

    Police prosecutor Sergeant Erica Sims asked magistrate Michael Carey for the matter to be adjourned to Tuesday to allow "sufficient time" for New South Wales officers to arrive in Darwin.

    He is expected to be extradited back to NSW to face the murder charge tomorrow.

    Stenberg was arrested by the territory response group on Sunday on a NSW warrant for the alleged decapitation of Edward "Ned" Kelly, 54, in Broadwater on June 21.

    The ex-army engineer surrendered without incident despite being armed with two handguns and a rifle.


    Stenberg's legal aid lawyer Shane McMaster asked the court to mark him "at risk" due to his mental state.

    He said Stenberg was in a "slightly agitated state", was suffering from anxiety and needed to address a medication regime.

    Mr McMaster suggested Stenberg be given his own cell at Berrimah jail.

    But Mr Carey said it was a matter for Corrections as to how his "at risk" status would be handled.

    Outside court, Commander Richard Bryson said Stenberg was found hidden in an "elaborate shelter that was so camouflaged you would have almost had to step on him to see him."

    He said police received more than 500 calls from Territorians and 156 direct tasks were given to officers for "suspicious persons" and "suspicious activity reports."

    "We were always confident that every day and every piece of information would bring us closer to apprehending Mr Stenberg," he said.

    JUST days after he allegedly cut the head off his neighbour, Jonathon Stenberg strolled into a film set in a remote Queensland town, and auditioned for a role in a thriller.

    With NSW Police hot on his tail, wanted over the decapitation murder of north coast man Edward Kelly, Stenberg took himself to the tiny rural township of Winton, where he tried his hand at playing the part of a policeman.

    The bizarre twist was revealed today as the producers of the movie Mystery Road contacted the media, hoping the gain some publicity for the upcoming film and shed light on Stenberg's movements prior to police capturing him.

    The film's assistant director Mark Ingram told The Daily Telegraph the cast and crew - which includes Hugo Weaving, Jack Thompson and True Blood star Ryan Kwanten - were still shaking their heads at their unlikely encounter with Stenberg.

    "We're all still a little shaken by it, it was just totally bizarre," Mr Ingram said.

    On the morning of June 23, Mr Ingram was pinning up posters outside the North Gregory Hotel asking locals to audition as extras in the movie, when Stenberg wandered up to him.

    "This gentleman came up and said hi, said he was passing through town and wanted to earn a few extra dollars," Mr Ingram said.

    "We weren't quite ready to take people in yet, so he said he'd go and buy me a coffee and come back in 20 minutes."

    Armed with a couple of coffees and some biscuits too, Stenberg returned to the local pub where Mr Ingram welcomed him in for an audition.

    "In he came, he was the first one through the door, so he was number one," he said.

    Stenberg told the film's producers and director he had a lengthy background in the military, he was trained in weapons use and had served in Afghanistan.

    "He was great. Very polite and well-spoken and he seemed really keen to help out on the film wherever he could," he said.

    Stenberg said he had no fixed address, other than the back of his ute, but said he also had a builders license and offered to help with any props building that might be needed on set.

    Impressed with Stenberg's audition and what he had to offer the film, Mr Ingram emailed him to offer him a role.

    "Ironically, because of his military background, we cast him as a policeman," Mr Ingram said.

    But on June 25, a day before Stenberg's ute was found in bushland in the Northern Territory, Mr Ingram received an email turning down the role.

    "He wrote back saying it was great to meet you, but unfortunately he had to go up north, and wouldn't be able to take on the role," Mr Ingram said.

    "He had mentioned at his audition that he might have a job to go to up north, but he didn't elaborate."

    Stenberg was arrested on Sunday, in a remote bush hideout, south of Darwin, in one of the largest manhunts in the Northern Territory's history.

    Police allege he murdered Mr Kelly, at his Broadwater home on June 21, and left a hat in place of where his head should have been.

    Stenberg appeared in Darwin Magistrate's Court today, where NSW Police successfully sought an extradition order to bring him back to Sydney, where he will be formally charged.

    Stories like this one keep me wondering why there is so much evil in the world. How can someone be capable of doing such horrific things to another human being? By the way, I don't like the fact of the violent nature of this story, just the person who posted the article.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion. However, it is much better to express yourself in a respectful manner. In other words, treat others the way you would like to be treated.

    The man accused of decapitating Edward "Ned" Kelly in northern NSW will face court in Sydney on Thursday after being formally charged with murder.

    JONATHON Andrew Stenberg, 46, was arrested in Darwin's rural outskirts on July 1 after a six-day manhunt by Northern Territory police.

    He was held in Darwin on a NSW arrest warrant and extradited to Sydney on Wednesday.

    He has now been formally charged with murdering Mr Kelly at the 54-year-old's home in River Street, Broadwater, on June 21.

    "He wrote back saying it was great to meet you, but unfortunately he had to go up north, and wouldn't be able to take on the role," assistant director Mark Ingram told News Ltd.

    "He had mentioned at his audition that he might have a job to go to up north but he didn't elaborate."

    A MAN accused of decapitating another man has now left the Northern Territory and is back in New South Wales.

    The lawyer for a man accused of decapitating his neighbour in northern New South Wales is seeking to have him released on bail.

    Jonathon Stenberg was charged with murder yesterday after arriving in Sydney after his extradition from the Northern Territory.

    The 46-year-old chose not to appear as the case was heard for the first time in Sydney's Central Local Court this morning.

    Stenberg is accused of murdering his neighbour, 54-year-old Edward "Ned" Kelly, whose decapitated body was found in his Broadwater home last month.

    Police are still searching for Mr Kelly's head.

    Today in court prosecutors asked the court for another eight weeks to prepare their case against Stenberg.

    The court heard that police from three jurisdictions are collaborating to prepare a brief of evidence against him.

    Stenberg's lawyer told the court he is preparing a bail application for his client, who is yet to enter a plea.

    Stenberg was arrested near Darwin on Sunday, after a six-day manhunt.

    Northern Territory police discovered a rifle, handguns and supplies in a rough shelter Stenberg had fashioned.

    It has since emerged that while Stenberg was on the run he also auditioned for a role in a film being shot at Winton in central-western Queensland.

    The man accused of beheading Edward "Ned" Kelly will face a court in the north coast area where he allegedly committed his crime.

    Jonathon Stenberg made his first appearance in a NSW court this morning after being caught near Darwin on Sunday and extradited yesterday.

    He did not appear at Central Local Court when a magistrate transferrred the case to a Lismore court for September.

    Mr Stenberg's legal representative, Chris Nyst, did not apply for bail for the 46 year-old builder and former army corporal. Instead he asked for an extra two to three weeks to go through the extensive brief of evidence.

    The prosecutor, Gina Mitchell, asked for even more time, up to eight weeks, because the evidence spans three jurisdictions.

    Mr Stenberg allegedly decapitated Mr Kelly, 54, in his Broadwater home around two weeks ago.

    He then allegedly fled the state, passing through Queensland - where the Herald reported he successfully auditioned for a murder mystery film - and ending up near Darwin in the Northern Territory.

    He was found hiding in a stealth bush camp after a six day man hunt by more than 100 Northern Territory police.

    Outside the court Mr Nyce said Mr Stenberg was doing "fine".

    Asked whether his client had a strong case for bail, he said: "We'll see about that".

    Earlier in the week when he fronted a Darwin court for an extradition hearing, his Legal Aid representative said he was anxious, agitated and "suffering some serious mental health issues".

    Mr Kelly's family have previously pleaded with Mr Stenberg to reveal the location of the his head.

    Police have not been able to recover it.

    Tanya, a niece of Mr Kelly's, said she was pleased to see Mr Stenberg would face a court in northern NSW as it meant she could come face to face with the person who allegedly killed her uncle.

    She said her mother, Mr Kelly's eldest sister, would also attend the case when it moves to Lismore.

    "It's important to us to be able to see it all happen and we hope for a fair trial for Ned," she said.

    Mr Stenberg owned a piece of land next to Mr Kelly's five-acre property and they allegedly often came to blows with each other.

    His family hopes to hold a show to sell some artworks made by Mr Kelly, remembered as a reclusive bird lover and artist. The proceeds will go to a charity for rescuing native birds.
