Police charge another two people over the death of truckie Bob Knight, who was killed by a stray bullet

April 23, 2010

Another two men have been changed with murder and affray over the fatal shooting of truck driver Bob Knight last year.

A 26-year-old and 28-year-old man will appear in court today after being initially charged with concealing an offence.

The 66-year-old Knight was killed on June 25 last year when he was hit with a stray bullet from a carpark shootout while driving his truck.

Police have now charged nine people with murder following an extensive investigation by Strike Force Wyndell.

Police charged seven men earlier this week—aged from16 to 32—with murder and affray

Knight was a subcontractor for around 30 years with TNT.

The linehaul operations manager of TNT, Brian Castle, knew Knight as a gentleman of the industry.

"He used to come out to the yard, get unloaded and load up again and go back down to Canberra. He was a top bloke, a real professional. He’d do anything for you," Castle recalls.

Castle says all those at TNT who knew Knight were devastated.

"It was really hard for a lot of people to accept, myself especially because I dealt so closely with him," he says.
