BT: Leeding family relieved by guilty verdicts


27 September 2013

"We've got the bastards."

That was how one member of Gold Coast detective Damian Leeding's family described their relief after a jury found two people guilty of his murder.

A Supreme Court jury in Brisbane took under two hours to decide on Monday that Phillip Graeme Abell, 41, and Donna Lee McAvoy, 39, were guilty over the shooting death of Senior Constable Leeding.

Sen Const Leeding, 35, was blasted in the face with a shotgun after he was called to an armed robbery at the Pacific Pines Tavern on May 29, 2011.
