"Goodbun had initially planned to murder his wife, kill himself and burn down the Horseshoe Bend property. He had also considered firing his remaining bullets at the first police officers to arrive on scene, but changed his mind when he realised “they’ve got a job to do”.

Besides, Goodbun thought, he would be quite happy to go to jail. 

          “I can go to jail for 30 f---ing years and get a bed and breakfast every day,” Goodbun told detectives during his police interview. “I know where I’m going. And I’m quite f---ing happy about it, I tell you, quite happy about it.”

In sentencing Keith Goodbun, 62, to at least 31 year's jail, Justice Helen Wilson said Goodbun committed a premeditated, cruel and deeply shocking crime, "motivated by deep anger".
