The Courier-Mail - - NEWS - ME­LANIE PLANE

PLANNED, pre­med­i­tated and vi­cious were the words Jus­tice Graeme Crow used to de­scribe the vi­o­lent stab­bing at­tack of a young fam­ily in Kut­tabul near Mackay.

Ce­duna man Ja­son Wayne Great­batch (in­set left), 38, was sen­tenced in Mackay yes­ter­day to 17 years in jail over the De­cem­ber 28, 2015 at­tack, tack of Mr Burgess, one count of griev­ous bod­ily harm with in­tent for the at­tack of Ms Moore, and was found guilty by a jury of at­tempted mur­der.

Jus­tice Crow said the at­tack on Ms Moore was “a most vi­cious, a most ter­ri­fy­ing and a most pro­longed at­tack” .

“You knew what you were do­ing and that is vis­it­ing a reign of ter­ror on this in­no­cent fam­ily,” Jus­tice Crow said.
