A woman has been charged with two counts of perjury as investigations into the double murder of two Gold Coast men last year continue.
Shane Ross, 36, and his business partner Cameron Martin, 47, were shot dead near Martin Shiel Park in Tallebudgera last October.
Following a protracted investigation into their deaths and a public appeal for information, detectives charged two Coolangatta men, aged 34 and 42, with two counts of murder with a ‘serious organised crime’ circumstance of aggravation earlier this year.

They were also charged with one count of unlawful use of a motor vehicle.
The pair, both from Coolangatta, faced Southport Court on March 20, where they were remanded in custody to appear in court again on June 18.
Following further inquiries into the murders, detectives today charged a 27-year-old Coolangatta woman with two counts of perjury.
“Police will allege the woman is known to the men charged with the murders,” Qld police said in a statement.
The woman has been granted bail and will appear in the Southport Magistrates Court on August 14.
Detective Superintendent Brendan Smith said at a press conference following the arrests in March this year, that it was a complex and difficult investigation.
He said the victims were known to the two alleged killers.
“We will be alleging that this was clearly a vicious and premeditated crime, where you’ve got members of the Outlawed Motorcycle Gang the Long Wolves, organising a meeting with the victims and then obviously shooting them dead,” Detective Smith said.
Investigations are continuing, with police still appealing for anyone who may have seen a white BMW X5 SUV with cloned number plates 498 YRF travelling between NSW and the Gold Coast on October 18 last year to contact them.
