Sounds like someone who will never learn his lesson. If they can prove the murderer was definitely him, or that he took some part in the violent robberies, I hope he gets life behind bars. What a disgusting human being. All IMO.From 2008
"A man charged over a plot to kidnap a truck driver and steal his vehicle containing up to $1.6 million in cigarettes has been freed on bail.
Steve Fabriczy, a truck driver from Rowville, was released on a $50,000 surety in Melbourne Magistrates' Court on Thursday for his alleged role in the plot."
All of that for $30k. Enjoy the rest of your life in jail Mr Fabriczy.Steve Fabriczy, 68, was arrested in Melbourne earlier this year, after a cold case investigation matched his DNA to the scene where the 73-year-old grandmother died.
On Thursday, he was also charged with five new offences, including seriously assaulting Mrs Palasics's husband Gregor, and confining the couple during the robbery.
Police allege Mr Fabriczy also stole $30,000 in cash from the Palasics's home, which it was alleged had been hidden in a false compartment behind a drawer.
A second person involved in the crime has not been found.

''Now police say they have identified the second man allegedly involved.
The 68-year-old man was arrested at Endeavour Hills in Melbourne on Wednesday and was extradited to Canberra after facing Dandenong Magistrates Court yesterday.
The man is expected to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court today, where he will face a single charge of murder.
Police said the latest arrest in this case — 24 years after the death of Mrs Palasics — came as a result of investigations that stemmed from the arrest of Mr Fabriczy in September.''
