3aw news

Scott Alan Murdoch has been sentenced to life in prison for murdering Kylie Blackwood.

Murdoch killed the Pakenham mother during a robbery at her home in 2013.

Murdoch, who pleaded guilty, learned his fate in court on Thursday.

He’s been handed a non-parole period of 36 years.

Kylie’s family thanked police for their “persistence and efforts” in getting them a result.

“On behalf of Kylie’s family, we would like to thank the Homicide Squad and everyone involved with the case for their persistence and efforts to get a result.

“After six-and-a-half years we have some closure but it does not bring our daughter back.

“Kylie was a dearly loved daughter, wife, sister, mother and friend.

“We hope that the parole system will be more accountable for whom they release in the future.”
