KILLER: Jamie Cust was jailed for a maximum of six years after he was found guilty of manslaughter over the stabbing of colleague Jesus Bebita at Scone in 2018. Cust will be eligible for parole in June, 2023.

AN abattoir worker who butchered an older colleague inside a unit at Scone, stabbing him 49 times in a "frenzied" attack, could be out of jail as early as 2023 after a judge found the killer was the victim of a "serious act of sexual violence".
