Second man charged with murder over hit on bikie boss
Police have charged a man with organising the murder of a former bikie gang leader, and say two other killings were ordered.
An outlaw motorcycle gang member is the second person charged over Nick Martin’s public execution at the Perth Motorplex last year.
Deputy police commissioner Col blanch described the latest accused as the alleged organiser of the rebels’ member murder.
A former soldier who carried out the hit has already admitted to firing the long range fatal sniper shot and is back in court next month.
The alleged organiser is also facing two other charges of inciting another person to commit an indictable offence.
Police say the man ordered the hits of a 35-year-old woman and another 35-year-old bikie gang member.
Neither was carried out and the accused will front a Perth Magistrate tomorrow facing six offences. These include murder, incite another person to commit principal indictable offence, namely murder; unlawful act or omission with intent to harm; and dealt with property used in connection with an offence.
Speaking with Oliver Peterson, 6PR reporter Jake Battrick said WA Police will allege $300,000 in cash was paid to carry out the hits.
