Two more guilty of Hell's Angel murder

The remaining two members of a motorcycle gang were found guilty today of the murder of a Hell's Angel.

Karl Garside, 45, and Ian Cameron, 46, both from Coventry, were found guilty by a 10-2 majority verdict of killing biker Gerry Tobin, who was shot dead on the M40 motorway in Warwickshire in August last year.

Mr Tobin, 35, from Mottingham, south east London, died almost instantly when he was shot as he rode along the M40 at about 90mph on August 12.

The trial has been told that he was targeted simply because he was a "fully-patched" Hell's Angel by members of the Outlaws South Warwickshire chapter.

Karl Garside and Cameron were both cleared by the jury of possessing a shotgun.

Jurors, who have been deliberating for eight days, convicted four other members of the Outlaws biker gang of the murder of mechanic Mr Tobin earlier this week.

Simon Turner, 41, from Nuneaton, Warwickshire, and Dane Garside, Karl Garside's 42-year-old brother from Coventry, were found guilty on Monday of killing Mr Tobin and possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life.

Malcolm Bull, a 53-year-old road sweeper from Milton Keynes, and Dean Taylor, 47, from Coventry, were found guilty of murder and possessing a shotgun on Tuesday and yesterday.

A seventh defendant, 44-year-old Coventry man Sean Creighton, pleaded guilty to murder and firearms charges before the trial began.

They will all be sentenced tomorrow.
