A murder conviction looms as Scott Macdougal admits killings

By johnboy - 6 October 2010 26

The ABC reports that the accused in the Downer Murders Scott Alexander McDougall has admitted he killed Struan Bolas, 48, and Julie Franco (aka Julie Tattersall), 35.

He has also admitted to committing the acts that caused their deaths with a wooden handled meat cleaver found inside the home.

He took the clothes he was wearing and dumped some of them in a rubbish bin.

McDougall also deliberately set fire to the residence, stuffing paper in a toaster and leaving it on hot plates that were later turned on.

Justice Gray is hearing the trial without a jury.

can we get the spelling in the title of this thread altered to reflect the scum’s, err, sorry the defendent’s proper name?

is there a book yet on whether the killing or the arson will get him the longer porridge?

I think you’ll find it’ll be the same in most civilised societies.

Dont’ know about that Wilco # 1

Makes you wonder about Canberra justice, he has a QC from Sydney Peter Hastings, a barrister and Ken Archer representing this monster, using all the tax payers money, how would you want a Psychopath out on the streets.

Add to taxpayers cost already the $499 a day it cost to keept this creature in the new canberra jail, with a bonus of having the additial luxories ie Barrister, Ken Archer and the QC Peter Hastings – Not too bad for a person who has just admitted to killing two people!

Next will he be invited to spend a night at the lodge for a three course meal at tax payers expense.

Mosty likely be convicted for manslaughter, and be lucky to serve 5 years in jail, if that!! What a joke!!!

johnboy 3:14 pm 06 Oct 10

hence the looming.

paperboy 3:10 pm 06 Oct 10

He’s admitted killing them, but hasn’t pleaded guity to murder, and the defence counsel hasn’t presented arguments yet, so Wilco might be right

AG Canberra 2:51 pm 06 Oct 10

Is this the same Scott McDougal that grew up in Wanniassa?
