Murder charge laid over Gungahlin NYE road death.

By Mr Evil 7 February 2008 9

I must admit to finding it curious that someone was able to run over a person lying on a straight stretch of road, without seeing them!

(I’m too lazy and stupid to link this!) [Ed – but for once we aren’t]

From The Australian (

“Murder charge after girlfriend run over February 07, 2008.

[see the link for the full story]

“Wayne Rino Antoniazzo, 22, of Campbelltown, allegedly ran over Amaranta Vrinalin Vega, 18, in the Canberra suburb of Gungahlin early on January 1.

In the ACT Magistrates Court today, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) upgraded the manslaughter charge to murder. ”

…”The DPP believes there is evidence to suggest Mr Antoniazzo’s actions were not accidental.

Preliminary evidence suggests Mr Antoniazzo knew Ms Vega was on the road and that he sped up and did not swerve before hitting her.”

…”Today in court Mr Antoniazzo pleaded not guilty to murder. He was remanded in custody and will reappear in court next week.”

Mr Evil and popgoescanberra you do not know her how dare you say that she is a nutcase.
i went to school with her. and she was a lovely young lady with more potential than you or any one could imagine. you both clearly are the nut cases for sitting here defending some one that did something so horrible. he not only hurt her and took her life affecting her, he affected all of our lives and hurt all of us especially her family and what did they do to him nothing but take him in.
so piss off and shut up about it.
Mr Evil so you are saying that society pushed him into the car gave him the keys and forced him to run my young friend over. because of some petty bull shit fight. if that is how you think i feel truely sorry for your GF or you GF’s in the futur cause society might one day tell you to hurt her. do you believe that will work in canberra courts??????
any person that gets on here needs to think twice before they start insulting her, think about her family and friends that get on here and see something like this plasted all over the internet jesus has only been a year since she was taken away. get a life!

It was her car, that he gave her, but took back after they had an argument.

And he has applied for bail so he can go back and answer charges in Sydney – what a charmer.

I sure that deep down he really loved her, and it’s society’s fault that he did what he did.

might as well slap him with a neg driving fine – $250 and 3 points is more than he’ll get through the court.
