Qld hit-run accused to spend Xmas in jail

The man accused of murdering a Brisbane teenager in a hit and run outside a wild house party will spend Christmas in jail.

Charles Greene, 21, is charged with the murder of 17-year-old Jordan Matehaere Tukaki.

The teenager was hit by a car during the party in Brisbane's south on the weekend.

Greene didn't appear at Beenleigh Magistrates Court on Monday.

His lawyer Lex Weddell appeared on his behalf, with Greene remanded in custody until the case returns to court on January 21.

Greene, from Woodridge, was also charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and callous disregard.

Outside the court, a friend of Mr Tukaki, Kaya Taylor, told reporters tensions were high within the community.

"They want revenge on the Africans but we're saying not to," Ms Taylor said.

"Jordan wouldn't want that because he was very humble."

Police say 100 to 150 people were at the party on Station Road at Woodridge when a brawl erupted and spilled out onto the street on Saturday night.

Woodridge MP Desley Scott says community leaders will meet on Monday amid suggestions from witnesses the brawl was sparked by racial tensions.

"We've had incidents before where we've been able to work through issues, so I have no doubt that we will work through these issues," she told ABC Radio.

"I did see that someone was suggesting that it could escalate, but I know the strength of our community.

"I'm sure that we will work through this again."

However, Detective Inspector Christopher Jory told reporters on Sunday there was nothing to suggest the incident was either gang or racially motivated.
