A FIFO worker and father was killed by a Nazi-affiliated “death squad” made up of his partner, her new boyfriend and a young acolyte who were all members of the extreme right wing White Nationalist group Aryan Nations, a court has been told.
On the morning of April 22, 2016 Alan Taylor, 42, was allegedly bludgeoned to death with a hammer in his own bed by Robert Edhouse, 22, Corey Dymock, 21 and another man, while the mother of his young son Melony Attwood, 36, stood nearby.
On Thursday, Mr Edhouse, Mr Dymock and Ms Attwood all went on trial in WA’s Supreme Court accused Mr Taylor’s murder.
Prosecutor Justin Whalley outlined how Ms Atwood and Mr Taylor had been together for nine years, had a young son and lived together at his house in Girrawheen.
He was a hard-working well-liked man, close to his family and friends.
According to Mr Whalley, she was the leader of the female branch of Aryan Nations, called Aryan Girls, while Mr Edhouse was the President of Aryan Nations, and Mr Dymock was the sergeant-at-arms.
“They were members of Aryan Nations, a group striving for equality in Australia – in reality it was just an affiliation of like-minded racists and white supremacists with a fascination for Hitler, Nazism and the Third Reich,” Mr Whalley said.
