Pair jailed for life over execution-style murder of Christchurch gang member

Two men have been jailed for life over the gruesome execution-style killing of a Rebels Motorcycle Club gang member.

Both Kasha William Gosset and Cody Derek Martin pointed the finger at each other for carrying out the cold-blooded murder that robbed a Christchurch family of a young dad.

But they were held equally responsible in court after a jury found them guilty of murdering Bradley Lomax.

The pair met Lomax at a cemetery under a guise related to drugs before driving to a secluded area by the Waimakariri River on September 4, 2017.

Gosset later admitted to the police he knew it would be a "one-way trip" for Lomax.

Fuelled by methamphetamine, the pair unleashed a slew of gunfire in a "cruel and callous" attack that left the victim unrecognisable.

Toys from the ‘rebels’

Christmas has passed but the season of giving certainly doesn’t end in December. Khmer Times’ Peter Olszewski writes about Rebels Motorcycle Club’s planned charity, Cambodia Toy Run, in Siem Reap, where underprivileged children on the outskirts of the city will receive gifts from old and new members of the riding club.

The Rebels Motorcycle Club will hold its annual Cambodia Toy Run for charity in Siem Reap this year for the first time, after a five-year history of the run in Sihanoukville.

Rebels Motorcycle Club spokesman Chris Tallis says holding the run in Siem Reap is a good way of introducing the club to the tourist-favourite town after the Rebel’s breakaway from Sihanoukville.

“Some of us went to Kampot and some came here,” he said. “We plan to officially open in Siem Reap in February (and) this is the first run in Siem Reap.

“We had no trouble here in Collie over the weekend,” he said.

“They spent the night just outside of Collie, and we had a lot of the police officers also stay the night in town so we would have been very well prepared if anything had happened.”
