Ex-Soldier Found Guilty of Singers Murder

EX-SOLDIER Matthew Cox has been found guilty of murdering Gold Coast nightclub singer Tony Williams.

27-year-old Cox admitted causing the New Zealand-born performer’s death, in 2011 – but pleaded not guilty to murder.

Cox posed as a postman to gain entry to Mr Williams’ unit before bashing him to death with a hammer, leaving blood smeared across the walls of the unit.

But a Supreme Court jury in Brisbane took needed only about four hours of deliberation to find Cox guilty of the singer’s murder.

Cox has been sentenced to life behind bars
