Final act in a history of violence

A man convicted last week for the reckless manslaughter of his wife had three previous convictions for assault against her and another for assault against his father. A Domestic Violence Order was in place to protect his wife from him but this didn’t stop Sebastian Kunoth from brutally attacking her at Abbott’s Camp on Christmas Day 2012, including by bringing down on her head a broken piece of concrete.

Witness threatened at murder charge hearing: ‘You’ll be dead’

 

CORRECTION, September 15, 2014: See FULL STORY.

 

UPDATE, 1pm: A 44-year-old man has been charged over this incident.

 

“I’m going to cut you, you’ll be dead”: these are the words I heard directed to a witness in the Alice Springs Magistrates Court yesterday, part way through the preliminary hearing of a murder charge against Sebastian Kunoth. The words in English were part of a stream of speech in an Aboriginal language by a man as he was ejected from the courtroom. The apparent threat brought the hearing to a standstill as prosecutor Stephen Geary sought to have the man arrested for intimidation of a witness. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
