‘No reason’ for shooting mother
SYDNEY, Thursday. — Central Criminal Court was told today that a youth had killed his mother by shooting her through the back of her head for no apparent reason.
Robert George McAlister, 17, of Blowering Road, Tumut, pleaded not guilty to murder but guilty to manslaughter. The Crown accepted the plea to the lesser charge.
Detective Sergeant G. C. Rooskov, of Tumut, said McAlister had gone to the Tumut Police Station at 1pm on August 7 last year and said he had shot his mother. Sergeant Rooskov said McAlister, then 16, had shown no emotion while telling his story.
McAlister had said that after he had dug up a rabbit burrow, his mother had told him to return the spade to his aunt. As she was walking away he had shot her through the head.
Sergeant Rooskov said McAlister was a member of the Young Anglicans Fellowship, a member of a tight-knit and happy family, and an average student.
Mr Justice O’Brien remanded McAlister for sentence.
Nothing further, than what is recorded above, is known about this person at the time of publication and further information and photos would be appreciated.
