Payback: six in court accused of beating man to death in Alice Springs

SEVENTH MAN, ALLEGED ACCESSORY AFTER THE FACT

 

DAY ONE plus links to all subsequent reports of five day hearing

 

Family members of a man beaten to death in an apparent ‘payback’ in February last year twice hurled abuse at the men accused of his murder in the Alice Springs Magistrates Court today. There are seven men in the dock – six accused of murder, one of being an accessory after the fact. G. Pollard died from "multiple traumatic injuries" after being assaulted at two locations before his naked body was dumped in a ditch by the Stuart Highway north of Alice Springs. KIERAN FINNANE reports. Pictured: Members of the public leaving the hearing this afternoon.
