Wife killer heck­led from gallery

The Observer - - NATION NEWS -

A SYD­NEY man has been jailed for at least

19 years for the mur­der of his wife, who he said killed her­self by jump­ing on a knife. A jury found Gavin John De Beyer guilty in

June of mur­der­ing his part­ner of 30 years,

Sharon Louise Michelutti (pic­tured), in

Fe­bru­ary 2016 while he was sub­ject to an ap­pre­hended vi­o­lence or­der. De Beyer, now

52, claimed his wife had threat­ened to kill her­self be­fore jump­ing on a knife. Po­lice found Ms Michelutti’s phone had been used to dial 000 that morn­ing but failed to con­nect. De Beyer was sen­tenced to a max­i­mum of 25 years’ jail and a non-pa­role pe­riod of 19 years. De Beyer turned in the dock and smiled as two young men in the NSW Supreme Court gallery yelled at him. “See you in 2035, you s---,” one shouted. An­other said: “You showed no re­morse, you c---.” – Daily Tele­graph
