Moran killing followed ‘dispute’ over money

14/05/2018 Posted by admin

Des MoranPOLICE are investigating claims that Des Moran was involved in a violent confrontation with the two women charged over his murder weeks before he was shot dead in Ascot Vale.Detectives have been told that Judy Moran suffered minor injuries in the incident. They have also been told that Des Moran turned on Suzanne Kane during the dispute, accusing her of being partially responsible for the underworld war.Police are also investigating claims that the parties were in dispute after Des Moran refused to pay Judy Moran any further money earlier this year.As the police investigation into Monday’s killing continued, the man accused of gunning down Des Moran appeared in the Melbourne Magistrates Court yesterday sporting a black eye and a cut over his eyebrow.Geoffrey Leslie Armour, 43, pointed to his injuries as he entered court but then crouched behind a wall, apparently trying to protect his identity.As sketch artists worked furiously to catch an image of Armour, his defence counsel objected to any publication of sketches or photographs of him, arguing identity could be a key issue in the case.Police, who will set up an information caravan near the site of the slaying to canvass for additional witnesses, supported the objection. It was felt that if images of Armour were made public they could influence witness decisions.Police are still searching for another alleged hitman and the getaway driver from the Ascot Vale slaying.Magistrate Dan Muling agreed to a suppression order on Armour’s image, ruling that the publication of his image would risk contaminating witnesses’ evidence.Mr Muling set Armour’s next court date for September 9, the day co-defendants Judy Moran and Suzanne Kane are also due back in court. There was no application for bail.Judy Moran, 64, and Suzanne Kane, 45, who is Armour’s defacto wife, appeared in court on Wednesday on charges of being accessories after the fact of the murder. Both women were also refused bail.With MEX COOPER
