A Mount Austin man has been committed to the Supreme Court for sentencing after he pleaded guilty to being an accessory after the fact to Allecha Boyd’s murder.
Anthony Shane Hagan, 20, confessed to helping bury the Coolamon woman’s body in the Lester State Forest in August, 2017 during an earlier court hearing.
Another man remains charged with her murder.
Hagan admitted to taking her body from about five kilometres south of Coolamon, where she was allegedly killed, to a remote location within the Lester State Forest.
Once there, Hagan said he helped to dig Ms Boyd’s grave and covered her body with dirt and small branches.
He later accompanied a tow-truck, which was called to remove the vehicle Ms Boyd’s body was transported in, to a rural property at Borambola.
He poured petrol all over the car and set fire to it with the intention of destroying it and any evidence within it relating to Ms Boyd.
Hagan is set to learn his fate on February 15, when the Supreme Court will sit in Wagga for his sentencing hearing.
He will also front Wagga District Court for sentencing on March 29 to be sentenced on matters of firearm possession and drug supply, both of which were unrelated to Ms Boyd’s death.
