Scott convicted of murder

RETIRED Gympie funeral director Philip Tonal Scott was convicted today of murdering his son-in-law Peter Brady in June 2008 outside the Rainbow Beach home where Mr Brady and his estranged wife Karena Brady had lived.

A Supreme Court jury in Brisbane deliberated for about three days to find Scott guilty of the murder.

Justice David Boddice ordered Scott serve a life sentence with 829 days served on remand to be counted against the sentence.

Brady’s family expressed great relief when the sentence was read out, later saying that justice had been served.
