CPR given to Caboolture stabbing victim before he died

A JURY has heard details about how paramedics tried to revive a man who had been stabbed in the chest at a Caboolture park, but that his heart was continuously "flat lined".

Jamie Lloyd Murray is on trial at Brisbane Supreme Court having being accused of murdering Caboolture man Mark Hemmings after the pair fought over 50 cents.

The men argued and physically fought after Mr Murray asked Mr Hemmings for 50 cents when the pair met on Banksia St on December 17, 2012.

Mr Hemmings and his partner were walking home after eating at Trader Dukes.

Minutes later, after Mr Murray allegedly left the scene and they continued walking home, the couple met the accused murder again on the edge of Bluebell Park, when he allegedly stabbed Mr Hemmings in the chest.

Mr Murray has pleaded guilty to Mr Hemmings's manslaughter but not guilty to murder.

At the trial on Monday, a paramedic gave evidence about how they tried to revive Mr Hemmings when they arrived on the scene.

The jury heard CPR was performed on Mr Hemmings for about 25 minutes and that he was given numerous fluids to try to save him, but the man could not be revived.

The jury also heard how a detective ran into Mr Murray when searching the area after the stabbing and that Mr Murray allowed his backpack to be searched and provided the police officer with identification.

The court heard Mr Murray was allegedly calm when the police officer spoke to him.

Last week when the trial opened, police prosecutor David Meredith said Mr Murray had admitted to unlawfully killing Mr Hemmings and that it would be up to the jury to decide whether he intended to kill the man.

He also said the weapon was never found.

The trial continues.
