Man found guilty of attempted murder on the Gold Coast

A TWEED Heads man has been found guilty of attempting to murder the new lover of his former girlfriend outside a Gold Coast home in 2011.

Tweed News reports a jury took less than three hours to convict Robert Kingsley Corowa in the Brisbane Supreme Court yesterday.

Corowa pleaded not guilty to the attempted murder of Marko Marjanovic outside his parent’s Robina home on November 26, 2011.

The court heard that Corowa had contracted a private investigator to scope out his lover’s new companion.

Corowa is alleged to have driven to the Robina home and, with the help of his investigator, tricked Mr Marjanovic into coming outside when he fired three shots from a sawn-off shotgun – the third striking Mr Marjanovic’s shoulder.

It’s further alleged Corowa has associations with the Rebels Criminal Motorcycle Gang.

Corowa is expected to be sentenced in the coming weeks.
