Stritzke guilty of poison death

A JURY has found Myles Edward Stritzke guilty of manslaughter for causing the death of Bronte James Clifford.

Stritzke only reacted by staring at the ground this morning when a Rockhampton Supreme Court jury returned its verdict at 10.53am.

Mr Clifford died at a party in Rockhampton last year after consuming strychnine, a poison used to kill rats.

Stritzke was on trial this week for manslaughter for taking the poison to the party.

After the jury returned its verdict, Crown prosecutor Richard Pointing handed to Justice Duncan McMeekin two documents – one from Mr Clifford’s mother and one from his father.

Defence barrister Tom Polley asked for a 30 minute adjournment to sort out some issues before Stritzke is sentenced.

Justice McMeekin will read the documents from Mr Clifford’s parents before returning around 11.30am to sentence Stritzke.
