A judge has urged for a case against a religious cult charged over the death of a schoolgirl to move quickly, as the group again refused legal representation.

Fourteen members of the Toowoomba group, made up of three families known as “the Saints”, were charged in relation to the death of Elizabeth Rose Struhs in Rangeville last year.

The eight-year-old, who died in January 2022 after being denied insulin, had told her school friends she wanted to help other children who had diabetes like her.

Her parents, Jason Richard Struhs and wife Kerrie, allegedly gathered members of their church to pray over Elizabeth in her final days, and eventually, her body, instead of calling paramedics.

The group appeared in the Supreme Court in Brisbane on Friday for a review of their case, where they again refused legal representation or to make any application for bail.

The court heard from a legal aid solicitor, who informed the group how the accused could access a lawyer if they desired later in the proceedings.
