Witness ‘ saw man with his intestines hanging out ‘

SYDNEY: A neighbour who heard a racket outside her house looked out the window to see a man with his intestines hanging out, Glebe Local Court heard yesterday.

Nicky Marinos said the man and two other men, who had a shovel and a hammer, were fighting, and a woman appeared to be trying to separate them.

She was testifying at the committal hearing of Huu Quynh Nguyen, 36, his wife Nga Thi Nguyen, 25, and Hai Thi Nguyen, 34, charged with murdering Duc Minh Le on December 15, at Marrickville, in Sydney’s west.

Magistrate Derrick Hand was told the 34-year-old woman was the victim’s sister-in-law.

Ms Marinos said the man, with his intestines hanging out was standing and fighting, ” waving his arms about “.

Constable Natalie Agnew said she arrived at the Marrickville house about 11.15am, when she saw the victim lying on his back on the driveway, bleeding profusely from his stomach.

The male defendant was charged on December 15, but the women were not charged until December 30.

Constable Agnew said that, when Nga Thi Nguyen was told of the charge, she appeared confused and agitated and did not seem to understand why

she was arrested, saying, ” but I did not do anything “.

Police officers told the court they found a meat cleaver, a large garden hoe, a silver knife and a silver metal bar near the scene.

Sergeant Peter Lander said Hai Thi Nguyen told him that, prior to the victim’s death, she had reported other incidents to police.

However, he could find no record of the alleged incidents, he said.

He agreed she had told him the deceased was a violent man.

The committal hearing, against the women, who are on bail and the man, who is in custody, will continue today.


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.

    I went to a few of those parties at Narwee back in the late 1960s. I was invited there by Ross Lawson (now deceased) we both attended Wauchope High School. I slept on the floor there a couple of times. Noel Hardy was also a classmate of mine from Redfern 119. We had 50th reunion in 2019, seems like only yesterday we passed out. It was at these parties that I first met Peter Lander. Twenty years later our paths crossed again when we were both sergeants at Marrickville. Doc Boyle was the head serang there at that time.
    Peter was a great bloke and his knowledge of law was encyclopedic. We often had drinks at the zacs (the Marrickville Anzac club) back in the day. Peter will be sadly missed by us all.

    I first met Peter as a Police Cadet at the boarding house at 69 Graham Road Narwee. This was an approved ‘boarding house’ and Peter was a Constable at Kingsgrove. There were other Cadets living there, namely Owen Jeffrey Halliday, Harold Ross Lawson, Noel Kevin Hardy and Garry Francis Gent. Cadets of that vintage will remember the parties held at that address as did the owners of the Narwee Hotel who often noticed that they lost a lot of beer glasses.
    Peter later lived in a self contained garage at my parents home at Bankstown for many years and he invited my late father to his admission ceremony to the bar. I also had the pleasure of working with his wife Stephenie at Revesby Police Station in the mid 90’s.
    Peter had a quiet nature which often masked his deep intelligence which was quite evident in that he completed his law degree part time in the shortest time possible at the same time remaining fully operational as a Detective Sergeant. He had a sharp dry wit and a love of Australian poetry.
    He now joins Doc and Ross at the big Cadet Club in the sky.
    Vale Peter…… Out the back of New South Wales, shearing sheep as big as whales……
