Spencer, 37, was found dead on his back porch in the early hours of the morning after allegedly responding to a sex ad posted by his killers via the online trading site Craigslist. Sex worker Peta Lorang-Goubran, 33, and her lover Dayney were each charged over the killing and alleged robbery. Police alleged the Coombabah couple orchestrated a sex racket using the online trading site, on which they would advertise sexual services and rob and assault their clients on arrival at the rendezvous point.
Dayney stands accused of a further string of offences allegedly committed a day earlier, including common assault, entering a dwelling with intent while armed in company, and for breaching bail. The court was told he was on bail at the time of the killing, charged with multiple counts of rape, sexual assault and attempted rape allegedly committed against a woman on October 30, Dayney made an application for bail through barrister Angus Edwards, who argued his client had a limited serious criminal history and had never been to jail for breaches of bail or failing to appear in court.
He said there was no forensic link between Dayney and the crime scene, and that the prosecution case relied on a witness statement from a person who earlier identified Dayney as a man in a car found nearby. Barrister Elizabeth Shaw, for the respondent, said the case against Dayney was reasonably circumstantial.
She said police were still waiting on elements of the forensic evidence to return from being processed. In dismissing the application, Justice Jean Hazel Dalton said Dayney had a lengthy criminal history and his past offending spoke of someone with a drug habit.
