Witnesses named ahead of April Kauffman murder case

MAYS LANDING — Next week, Ferdinand “Freddy” Augello will stand trial for the murder of Linwood’s April Kauffman, a veterans advocate and radio host found dead in her home in 2012.

Augello, 62, of Upper Township was charged in January along with April’s husband, James Kauffman, in the six-year-old murder case that captivated the region and was featured on national news. His alleged co-conspirator, James Kauffman, died in an apparent jailhouse suicide two weeks after the charges were announced.

Prosecutors have accused Augello, a retired Pagans motorcycle gang leader, local musician and sign maker, of hiring Francis Mulholland to kill April Kauffman at the request of James Kauffman. Mulholland died in 2013.

In addition to murder, the state alleges James Kauffman and Augello ran an illegal opioid drug ring out of James Kauffman’s office, and that Augello conspired to have James Kauffman killed after April’s death.

Comanchero charged with attempt murder of former gang president

A Canberra Comanchero arrested while trying to board an international flight will fight allegations he attempted to murder the gang's former ACT president.

Axel Sidaros, 24, allegedly had a ticket to fly to Abu Dhabi when he was arrested at Melbourne Airport last week.

Taskforce Nemesis extradited Mr Sidaros to the ACT from Victoria over the weekend, and he appeared in the ACT Magistrates Court on Monday.

Mr Sidaros, appearing before Chief Magistrate Lorraine Walker, entered pleas of not guilty to 13 charges, including attempted murder, arson, firearm possession, trespass, and intentionally inflicting grievous bodily harm.

The court heard the majority of the charges stemmed from a June attack on former Comanchero ACT president Peter Zdravkovic.

The ACT chapter of the Comanchero Outlaw Motorcycle Gang was plunged into an internal war after it split into two factions earlier this year.

Bikies from rival gangs join forces to set up first chapter of Nomads in Tasmania

In what appears to be a sign of unrest between existing bikie gangs in Tasmania, police intelligence suggests members of rival clubs are breaking away to set up a new Nomads chapter.

It is the seventh outlaw bikie gang to lay a stake on the state.

Rival gangs the Devil's Henchmen, the Satan's Riders, the Black Uhlans, the Outlaws, the Rebels and the Bandidos already call Tasmania home.

Now police intelligence suggests a new Nomads chapter is forming, but where it will locate itself is not yet known.

The Nomads is an established gang on the mainland, with chapters in Sydney and Newcastle in New South Wales and Adelaide in South Australia.

It is the first time the gang has been active in Tasmania.

Police Commissioner Darren Hine refused to reveal specifics of where the club was looking to establish its first chapter, or confirm it was the Nomads.

"We are aware another group coming to Tasmania," he said.
