"Austin murdered Mr O'Donohue with absolute deliberate actions. He was calculating as he drove at speed towards him, not slowing down even when he made contact with his victim and crashed through railings and wall.
Following the collision, Austin fled, concocting a plan to distance himself from the car and the incident in general. He manipulated his mother into reporting the vehicle as stolen and claimed to have no knowledge of what happened when we caught up with him in Swindon.
Austin's original story of not being involved was shown to be a lie. He then changed his account saying it had been an accident but he fooled no-one, including the jury. His actions were deliberate and he's rightly been convicted of murder."
