Nick Martin's alleged killer, makes front page news of the West online tonight and the paper edition for tomorrow (Tuesday).

'Mon, 26 April 2021 10:18PM'

'The fatal shot was allegedly fired on December 12 last year from an estimated distance of 300 metres,'

'... he faces another court date later this week, after ongoing inquiries into the alleged murder by WA Police led to five more criminal allegations.
The former soldier is alleged to have failed to provide storage facilities for a firearm or ammunition, and also of possessing a silencer — which in itself can attract a penalty of up to three years.
He also now faces charges of possessing a prohibited drug, contravening a learner’s permit — and driving a vehicle with false plates.
The revelation comes after the accused man’s second court appearance on the murder charge was brought forward in secret — meaning he appeared before a magistrate last week with no media in attendance.
He had been slated to appear again on April 28 within Perth’s so-called “homicide list” which is regularly scheduled for the last Wednesday of every month.
But The West Australian has learnt that without public notice, that hearing was brought forward seven days — meaning the alleged gun-for-hire made his second appearance last Wednesday.
The only detail about that hearing immediately available is that his next appearance was scheduled for late June. His lawyer David Manera confirmed his client had been remanded.
No plea to any of the charges has been entered.
Reporting restrictions also remain in place, which mean the man’s image and identity cannot be reported....'

Do pleeece have the right person? There seems to be some curious charges here, you might even think they’re a bit spurious.

They’re most likely holding charges obviously, but why? Do they have strong enough evidence this person is the shooter?
Anticipating they have a slippery customer who might not be so easy to slot would be my guess and loading him up with as many charges as they can find hoping that some of them will stick? :laughing:

Understandable but they’re trying to get him for murder not jaywalking? Maybe he’s just not talking (again understandable) and their case isn’t that strong?

Just seems really weird. Weird too because there’s been no other high profile arrests, is it possible he acted alone? A vigilante?
