              A compelling true story of outback murder and injustice in the tradition of Making a Murderer At first it looked like a swag, but flies were buzzing around, saysthe grader driver who found the body just off the road outside the outback town of Katherine. Police identify the dead ...man as Ray Nicefero, not a particularly popular local resident who'd recently appeared in court for aggravated assault and breaching a domestic violence order.Three days later, the constabulary rounds up three young local suspects: Christopher Malyschko, 24, Darren 'Spider' Halfpenny, 22, and 19-year-old Zak Grieve, who happens to be Indigenous. A month later, Bronwyn Buttery, Ray's former partner and Christopher's mother, is arrested. Eventually Darren Halfpenny, who has suffered a brain injury and is addicted to alcohol and weed, agrees to testify against his co-accused. But when the accused face court in the rough justice system of the Northern Territory, it soon becomes apparent there are few certain, provable facts to be had. Depending on who's talking, a loving friend can become an abusive monster, a battered wife a conniving temptress. And a joke between mates about the best way to dispose of a body becomes a conspiracy to murder. The outcome of the case is no less murky, thanks to the NT's mandatory sentencing laws, which, the judge says himself, 'brings about injustice'. What is indisputable is that the only man not to participate in the murder receives the longest sentence. Mandatory Murder is the compelling true story of a murder in an outback town in 21st century Australia and the extraordinary aftermath. Author Steven Schubert was living in Katherine when the murder took place, and his account is rich with detail as only an eye-witness can provide. Schubert, and the story itself, raises more questions than are answered, including how a man who didn't attend a murder can go to jail for 20 years.

              By Schubert, Steven

              A compelling true story of homicide and injustice in an outback town At first it looked like a swag, said the grader driver. He'd found the body just off the road outside the outback town of Katherine in the Northern Territory. Police quickly identified the dead man as Ray Nicefe...ro, who'd recently appeared in court for aggravated assault and breaching a domestic violence order. Three days later, three young local suspects were arrested, including nineteen-year-old Indigenous man Zak Grieve. A month later, Ray's former partner was also arrested. But when the accused faced court in the rough justice system of the Territory, it quickly became apparent that there were few provable facts to be had. Depending on who was talking, a loving friend could be an abusive monster, a battered wife a conniving temptress. And a joke between mates about the best way to dispose of a body could be a conspiracy to murder. The outcome of the case was no less murky, thanks to the Territory's mandatory sentencing laws, which, the judge said, 'brings about injustice'. Mandatory Murder is the compelling true story of murder in an outback town and the extraordinary aftermath. It raises several important questions, including how an Indigenous man who didn't attend a murder can be sentenced to jail for twenty years.

              A former US Top Gun and Qantas captain's gripping account of how one of the world's worst air disasters, caused by a rogue computer, was narrowly averted. Former US Navy Top Gun Kevin Sullivan, captain of the ill-fated Perth-bound Qantas Flight 72, breaks his silence to give a gr...ipping account of how a rogue computer went 'psycho' and sent the Airbus A330 into two terrifying nosedives towards the Indian Ocean. Unlike other well-publicised near air disasters such as those described in Sully and QF32, Sullivan's plane carrying 303 passengers was out of control, with a G force of -8 driving anyone and anything untethered through the cabin roof. It took the skill and presence of mind of a veteran Top Gun to wrestle the plane back under control and perform an emergency landing at a RAAF base in the middle of WA. More than 100 injured people, many seriously, were airlifted to hospital in Perth. As automation becomes the way of the future, the story of QF72 raises important questions about how much control we relinquish to computers and whether more checks and balances are needed.
