Guillerme granted bail

Samantha Guillerme was granted bail by the Supreme Court of Victoria yesterday.


Murder accused Samantha Guillerme was yesterday granted bail by the Supreme Court of Victoria.

Ms Guillerme, 25, was one of three people charged with the murder of Newborough man Jarrad Lovison last year.

During a bail hearing at the Supreme Court, police did not want Ms Guillerme granted bail due to fears she could obstruct justice and interfere with witnesses.

Justice Paul Coghlan granted Ms Guillerme bail to live with her parents at Moe, but she must abide by strict conditions including a curfew, not to contact any witnesses or her co-accused, and not take drugs.

The judge told Ms Guillerme to comply with her bail and to stay away from former associates otherwise he would revoke her bail.

Ms Guillerme is set to next face court in November.
