GINO and Mark Stocco have fronted court for the first time on fresh charges of arson.
The father and son duo – who led police on a dramatic chase through NSW and Victoria after allegedly shooting at officers near Mangoplah – were arrested in October and charged with a string of offences including murder.
The fresh charges relate to two farm sheds that were burnt down in Canowindra, near Cowra, in 2014.
In Dubbo Local Court on Wednesday, Stoccos’ solicitor told magistrate Claire Girotto a partial brief of evidence had been served.
Ms Girotto ordered the remainder to be served by March 2 and adjourned all matters to March 16. Neither of the men applied for bail.
Prior to being arrested, the Stoccos had been on the run for eight years. The incident at Mangoplah and subsequent chase captivated the nation.
