Kai Yuen pleads guilty to the Hughes shooting

johnboy 18 February 2013 22

The ABC has word that the trial for the murder of Brendan Scott Walsh in 2010 has come to a speedier than expected conclusion:

The man accused of murdering Brendan Scott Walsh in Canberra’s south two years ago has pleaded guilty just a week out from his trial.

Mr Welsh was shot in the chest with a double barrel shotgun as he sat in his car at the Hughes shops in May 2010.

Kai Yuen, 28, was charged with his murder and had been due to stand trial next week after pleading not guilty.

The ACT Supreme Court trial was to take eight weeks with more than 100 witnesses.

But in a surprise move today Yuen changed his plea to guilty, avoiding a trial.

Sentencing will be in April. Alleged conspirators Cameron Ashcroft and Todd Elphick are still awaiting trial.

how many times did brendan see his kids between when he was released in january and when he was shot in may? top shelf father and all around good bloke. bull****! welshy stole oxygen with every breath. hope kai gets 10 on the bottom. people live a drug lifestyle and then cry foul when it gets real.

Every second week! Would have seen them more if it wasn’t for his c@@t of a mother I’m not upset about losing a drug dealer I’m devestated by the loss of my partner and the father of my at the time unborn daughter !! His death had nothing to do with drugs it was a stupid fight over a car that had nothing to do with Kai! Maybe u should get your facts straight before commenting on something u know nothing about ! I’m sure your going to come back with some stupid comments about how I’m a drugo don’t care I know the truth and that’s all that matter r.i.p brendan rot in hell Kai
