A JURY has found Young man Nathan John Blundell guilty of being an accessory before the fact of Corey Power’s 2013 murder.
The Supreme Court jury sitting at Griffith retired on Tuesday morning to consider its decision and delivered a guilty verdict about 2.30pm.
A sentencing hearing will be held on November 25.
Mr Power was murdered by Blundell’s mate, Owen Fuller, after refusing to hand over money he received for selling a generator stolen by Blundell and Fuller from a Spring Creek Road business on August 7, 2013.
That crime eventuated in Mr Power’s murder three weeks later when he refused to give Fuller a cut of the money he obtained from selling a generator taken in the raid. Fuller became so angry he bashed Mr Power to death with a tomahawk on August 29.
He was found dying on Wombat Street by a woman taking her dogs for a walk.
Fuller was jailed for 24 and a half years for the murder and other offences.
Justice Rothman described the tomahawk killing of Mr Power as frenzied.
