Life terms for murder

A fourth man was sentenced to eight years jail for manslaughter over the March 4, 2012, killing.

Among the murderers was Mr Blenkinsopp’s former lover Tamara Broadbent, who will serve a non-parole period of 24 years.

Her accomplices Gary David Young and Damien Paul Kosick will serve non-parole periods of 24 years and 22 years respectively.

Kym Steven Foster, Broadbent’s lover at the time of the murder, will serve a non-parole period of six years for manslaughter.

According to media court reports, the four were under the influence of drugs and alcohol when Mr Blenkinsopp was shot three times and run over by a car on a suburban street in Wanneroo.

The group drove the father-of-two (30) to a pine plantation in Pinjar, where he was shot in the head and buried.

According to reports, the court heard the killers lured Mr Blenkinsopp to Taywood Drive after Broadbent had decided she no longer wanted her ex-lover in her life.

They pleaded not guilty to causing the victim’s death.

Their sentences were backdated to March 28, 2012.
