Teen Will Defend Rape & Murder Charges
The 18-year-old man charged with the rape and murder of pregnant Logan woman Joan Ryther will “vigorously defend the charges“, Michael Bosscher of Boscher Lawyers told media today.
“He has given us instructions that he intends to vigorously defend these charges,” Mr Bosscher said.
“He’s obviously very anxious about being in custody, very anxious about his circumstances and of course anxious about his future.
“…He’s only a young fella and life’s taken a big turn for him last night, but he’s adamant that he’s not participated in any way in this offence and he’s instructed us to vigorously defend the charges.”
