Katie Foreman murder trial: trio face sentencing

Sentencing for three people who murdered Wollongong lawyer Katie Foreman will begin in early July.

Ms Foreman's estranged partner Bradley Max Rawlinson and one of his accomplices, Michelle Sharon Proud, were found guilty of Ms Foreman's murder by a 12-member jury earlier this month.

A third person, Wendy Anne Evans, had already pleaded guilty to a charge of murder.

Ms Foreman died when a deliberately lit fire tore through the upstairs bedroom of her Corrimal house in the early hours of October 27, 2011.

Rawlinson, Proud and Evans played different parts in orchestrating and carrying out the attack, however, the jury determined that both Rawlinson and Proud, who were not present at the house when the fatal fire was lit, were still guilty of murder by way of their involvement in a joint criminal agreement to kill or seriously injure her.

In a brief mention in the Supreme Court on Tuesday, Justice Ian Harrison set aside July 3 and 4 to hear sentencing submissions for the trio.

Lawyers representing each offender will present subjective material to Justice Harrison to take into account when determining the appropriate sentences.

A fourth person police allege was also involved in the murder, Proud's partner Bernard Justin Spicer, is due to face court again next month to set a date for his trial.
