Two brothers will face court later this week after they allegedly used an excavator to rip shreds off their late parents’ house – all to spite their sister.
Malcolm and Garry Taylor will be sentenced in Victoria’s County Court on Friday after pleading guilty to criminal damage charges.
The court earlier heard the two brothers had travelled from their homes in Queensland to allegedly disrupt the sale of the Murtoa property, in regional Victoria, in March 2019.
The house was due to sell for $99,000 but, as soon as the brothers caught wind of the sale, it’s alleged they booked an excavator in the nearby town of Horsham and planned their attack on the house.
“I bet it doesn’t look like that at 12 noon on Friday,” Malcolm texted his brother, after seeing photos of his parents’ Murtoa home.
