A JURY is expected to retire at lunchtime today to consider the fate of two men charged over the driving death of a Greendale woman in 2010.
Day 12 of the dual-person trial yesterday saw the prosecution and defence teams deliver their closing submissions to the jury.
Two men are on trial over the death of Breanna Lorraine Willmott, 20, who was killed on July 19, 2010, after her car was smashed between two utilities.
The first vehicle is alleged to have stopped in the left-hand lane of the Western Highway near Myrniong off-ramp about 6.10pm when another utility allegedly slammed into the back of Ms Willmott’s car.
Travis Dunkley-Price, 37, is accused of stopping his utility in the left-hand lane near the Myrniong off-ramp about 6.10pm, before Ms Willmott came to a stop behind him.
Brett John Stevenson, 25, is accused of smashing into the back of Ms Willmott’s car at an alleged speed of 109km/h.
Taking almost two hours to deliver their closing submissions to the jury, Crown prosecutor Justin Lewis told the jury to find each man guilty.
“It’s clear that he (Dunkley-Price) stopped his car in the left-hand running lane,” he said, adding that Stevenson “should have had time to react to the situation”.
“Both the accused caused the death,” Mr Lewis said. “Mr Dunkley-Price initiated these tragic events and Mr Stevenson finished them off.”
Mr Lewis told the jury to convict Dunkley-Price on charges of culpable driving and negligently causing serious injury, before telling them to convict Stevenson on charges of dangerous driving causing death and dangerous driving causing serious injury.
The trial before Judge Susan Pullen continues.
