SENTENCING proceedings began in the Sydney Supreme Court yesterday for one of the five people involved in a criminal enterprise which resulted in the 2010 murder of Glen Innes greengrocer Adrian Trevett.
Submissions were put forward for the sentence to be served by Christine Weston, who was charged with accessory to the fact of murder after Mr Trevett went missing on October 2010.
It is understood sentencing submissions for Karen Dawson and her son, Matthew Aquilina, as well as Grafton man David Comber, who is also accused of Mr Trevett’s murder, will begin today.
Submissions will also be heard at the Sydney Supreme Court for Casino woman Deborah Grant, who was charged with being an accessory.
During court proceedings throughout the past two years, it was revealed the group was part of a joint criminal enterprise that resulted in Mr Trevett’s death at an old butter factory at Red Range on October 28, 2010.
Mr Trevett’s remains were found in a national park east of Tenterfield in January 2011.
