Sydney woman handed community service for Samurai sword death of rapper
A Sydney woman has been sentenced to a two-year community corrections order for accessory after the fact to manslaughter.
Hannah Quinn was at her boyfriend Blake Davis’ house in Forest Lodge in Sydney in 2018 when aspiring rapped Jett McKee broke in and tried to rob them.
Davis was knocked unconscious with knuckledusters and woke to Quinn screaming, before he ran outside and sliced Mr McKee with a Samurai sword.
Today, Justice Natalie Adams handed Quinn a community corrections order which requires her to receive treatment for her mental health issues.
In sentencing, she ruled Quinn’s action in the days after McKee was killed were “towards the lower end of criminality”.
Quinn and Davis checked in to hotels across Sydney in the days after the death, before handing themselves into police three days later.
In December, a NSW Supreme Court judge directed the jury to find Quinn not guilty of murder.
