Lionel Patea to be sentenced for murder of Gold Coast dad Greg Dufty

Former bikie Lionel Patea has admitted to murdering Gold Coast father Greg Dufty, just months before killing his former girlfriend in a shocking road rage attack.

Patea pleaded guilty to the 2015 killing in Brisbane’s District Court on Monday.

His brother Nelson Patea pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter, while co-accused Aaron Crawford pleaded guilty to unlawful killing and interfering with a corpse.


Greg Dufty disappeared on July 6, 2015 after boarding a Mack truck heading to the Gold Coast hinterland.

It’s understood the father-of-two was bashed to death over a drug debt, however his body has never been found.

Lionel Patea, who has already been convicted of killing his ex-girlfriend Tara Brown, is due to be sentenced over Dufty’s murder on Tuesday.
