Two men charged over alleged murder of ex-bikie Ricky Ciano

TWO men have been charged over the alleged murder of former Gold Coast bikie Ricky Ciano.

Ciano’s body was found in the back of his luxury BMW car in Duckmaloi, NSW on Valentine’s Day last year.

It’s understood Mr Ciano’s family reported him missing to police after they couldn’t get in contact with him during a visit to Sydney.


Investigations into the 35-year-old’s death have been ongoing ever since, and on Thursday, Detectives from the State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad arrested two men at a correctional facility at Silverwater.

A 33-year-old man was charged with murder, while a 44-year-old man was also charged with murder as well as tamper with evidence with intent to mislead judicial tribunal.

Police will allege in court the men gave Mr Ciano a cocktail of prescription and prohibited drugs, which were at fatal levels, and then drove him to Duckmaloi, where they abandoned his car with his body inside.

Both men were remanded in custody to appear at Lithgow Local Court later today.
