Karl Bishop has been found guilty of the murder of the talented young actor, Rob Knox.
Rob's murder happened not long after I was elected and caused a great deal of disquiet in the local community. Working with the local police and councillors in the immediate aftermath presented me with a steep learning curve. I feel that the community, police and council came closer during that time.
I hope that this verdict and today's sentencing will bring a little some level of comfort to Rob's family.
