Third man guilty of biker murder
A third member of a motorcycle gang was found guilty today of the murder of a Hell's Angel.
Malcolm Bull, 53, from Milton Keynes, was convicted by an 11-1 majority verdict of killing Gerry Tobin, who was shot dead on the M40 in Warwickshire in August last year.
A jury at Birmingham Crown Court, which is still considering the case against three other men accused of murder, also found Bull guilty of possessing a shotgun.
Jurors convicted two other members of the Outlaws biker gang of the murder of Mr Tobin yesterday.
Simon Turner, 41, from Nuneaton, Warwickshire, and Dane Garside, a 42-year-old from Coventry, were also found guilty by the jury of possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life.
Garside, a father of seven, was also convicted today by a 10-2 majority verdict of possessing a shotgun.
The jury is still considering its verdicts on three other men who deny murdering Mr Tobin, a 35-year-old from Mottingham, south east London.
The remaining defendants, who all deny murder and possessing a shotgun, are Karl Garside, 45, Dean Taylor, 47, and 46-year-old Ian Cameron, all from Coventry.
Mr Tobin, a mechanic, died almost instantly when he was shot as he rode along the M40 at about 90mph on August 12 last year.
The trial has been told he was targeted simply because he was a "fully-patched" Hell's Angel by members of the Outlaws' South Warwickshire chapter.
Bull, wearing a suit and tie, showed little emotion other than to blink repeatedly as the guilty verdicts against him were returned.
The eight-week trial was told that Bull, a professional driver who denied playing any part in the murder, was the treasurer of the South Warwickshire chapter of the Outlaws.
A seventh defendant, 44-year-old Coventry man Sean Creighton, pleaded guilty to murder and firearms charges before the trial began.
The jury will resume its deliberations tomorrow.
