THE man charged with murdering Corey Power at Young is now accused of intimidating a former girlfriend from jail and bashing another prisoner in the South Nowra Correctional Centre.
The fresh charges against Owen Fuller, 19, were revealed in Wagga Local Court on Wednesday when his murder case was mentioned.
It is alleged Fuller intimidated the woman on Easter Sunday. He was charged with the offence on May 25.
The following day, he was charged with recklessly wounding 54-year-old Jouni Risto (John) Ahola in prison on March 4.
Ahola, formerly of Tarcutta, is serving an 18-year minimum sentence for the murder of his fiancee Sandra Thomson at Malua Bay on the south coast in 2011.
Fuller was on remand in South Nowra at the time of the alleged bashing, charged with murdering 33-year-old Mr Power in a Young Street on August 29, 2013.
Mr Power suffered massive head injuries.
Also in Wagga Local Court on Wednesday were Fuller’s mother, Annette Allen, of Collingullie, and his brother, Thomas McGill.
Both are charged with being an accessory after the fact of Mr Power’s murder and an armed robbery Fuller is alleged to have committed at the Caltex service station nine days before Mr Power’s gruesome death.
Police allege Allen and McGill helped Fuller leave Young when they became aware of Mr Power’s death.
They have been granted bail since their last Wagga court appearances in March.
Fuller’s 32-year-old partner, Tamsin Paul, faces the same charges.
On remand in the Silverwater Women’s Correctional Centre, her case was also mentioned on Wednesday, but she was not required to appear in court.
Nathan John Blundell, a 22-year-old mate of Fuller also charged with Mr Power’s murder and with being an accessory before the fact of the alleged homicide, also chose not to appear by video link when all five cases were mentioned.
Fuller’s solicitor, Shawn Mortimer, told magistrate Erin Kennedy his client did not want to “come up on the screen for these proceedings”.
By agreement between Crown solicitor Virginia Morgan and the defence solicitors, all cases were adjourned to July 15 to allow time for a case conference.
Mr Mortimer said a barrister being instructed in Fuller’s case, Eric Wilson, was currently involved in another murder trial and may need more time to read the prosecution’s brief of evidence.
Ms Morgan told Ms Erin Kennedy the brief was 10 volumes in size and had been served in its entirety to the defence teams.
