Rosemary Shearman's son and daughter, Greg Shrearman and Carol Lewis, said after the sentencing today:
“We feel the sentence is some small justice following the tragic murder of our mother.
We are relieved that the jury reached a guilty verdict and that a very dangerous has been removed from the community.
We pay tribute to the bravery of Ray Lomas, a neighbour of our mother, who went to her aid and helped raised the alarm.
We also thank the murder investigation detectives and prosecution team. Their tireless work helped secure the result at court today.”
