Young Woman Charged Over Murder Of Aspiring Rapper ‘Distressed’ Behind Bars
Hannah Quinn, 23, and her boyfriend handed themselves in at Newtown Station on Monday night.
The young woman charged with the murder of aspiring rapper Jett Mckee remains "very distressed" behind bars.
Hannah Quinn was charged on Monday night after she and her 28-year-old boyfriend presented themselves to Newtown Police Station.
Her matter was briefly mentioned in court on Tuesday morning, but her lawyer Lauren Mac-Dougall saved her bail bid until Thursday.
“She's very distressed," MacDougall said when asked how the young woman was coping during her first time in custody.
Her boyfriend was taken to hospital for treatment on pre-existing injuries and remains there. Police said he's also likely to be charged with murder on Tuesday afternoon.
It's believed the pair was involved in a deadly samurai sword attack in Forest Lodge on Friday afternoon, which killed aspiring rapper Jett Mckee.
Witnesses say they saw the 30 year old involved in an altercation with a couple on Hereford Street just before 1pm.
In his final moments, McKee was seen staggering down the road covered in blood before collapsing in Minogue Crescent. Police raced to the scene but he could not be saved.
The incident sparked a mass manhunt over three days.
Jett McKee is well-known in Sydney for his work 'Sccepaz', his rap allias since he was 14.
He co-founded his own independent record-label, Sub Conscious Records, and had become somewhat of an Aussie hip-hop legend, working in collaboration with artists such as Dseeva, DJ Maniak, Nihilist and Myth4.
Eerily, in one of his tracks, his lyrics speak of being killed.
"I think I lost my mind a bit, I'm hiding from sirens wise guys trying to end my life," he rapped.
A graffiti mural has been painted in his memory by an industry colleague P.Smurf.
