The three men accused of murdering Jayson Doelz, whose body was found on the side of a road in the Adelaide Hills, were back in court yesterday, the judge hearing from the defense lawyers who say the prosecution witnesses should be treated with tremendous suspicion.
Lawyers for Chad Badock, Kym Barnes and Shane Muckray say Jayson Dolez wasn’t lured to the Pooraka property where he was allegedly tied up and beaten before being driven to Kersbrook in January 2012, instead saying Doelz was a drug user who owed money to one of the prosecution witnesses.
Chad Badock’s lawyer also says there is no evidence except from witnesses testimony that his client was even there, with no phone records or DNA tying him to the victim.
Doelz' body was found on the side of the road badly beaten and with stab wounds to his head and body. The case continues.
