It wasn’t me…


Former Jetstar pilot Gregory Lynn, who’s on trial for the murder of elderly campers Russell Hill and Carol Clay in Victoria’s High Country, yesterday apologised to the victims’ families for their loss. He’s offered to plead guilty to destroying evidence – but he denies he’s a murderer. He says Clay was accidentally shot during a tussle over a shotgun and that Hill then attacked him with a knife, leading to the man’s death. “I should be punished for what I did,” he said in court, but “I am innocent of murder.” The prosecution was having none of it – yesterday it wrapped up it’s cross-examination of Lynn and pushed him during the sometimes fiery exchanges, including on his admission of lying to his wife about his involvement in the case. The jury will begin hearing closing arguments on Tuesday.
