He's got a good lawyer thats for sure. The uncertainties around the deaths are going to be make it difficult to get murder conviction.
Good Lawyers / Barristers get bad people off a lot of crimes that everyday people like us can't afford
I am tipping that he may wriggle out of one with a firearm misfire as Voluntary Manslaughter but maybe not for the other person, but then to deliberately try to dispose of the bodies would be seen as a reckless indifference to human life
In a case of murder (except for when the murder is constructive murder), the prosecution must prove that the accused had full intention to kill, an intention to inflict grievous (and serious) bodily harm, or a reckless indifference to human life. The accused must have foreseen that his or her actions, or failure to act, amounted to the death of the victim.
An intentional killing that is accompanied by mitigating factors describes voluntary manslaughter. The mitigating factors are generally lack of premeditation and provocation, which causes anger or rage; however, there are other factors that may apply. An example of this would be a person who is provoked in an argument, to the extent that they become enraged and immediately lash out at the victim, killing them in the heat of the moment.
Involuntary manslaughter refers to an unlawful killing without intent – usually, where death is caused by negligence or recklessness, by committing an unlawful and dangerous act. An example of this would be a passenger in a car who is killed due to the driver’s reckless driving behaviour.

I for one, would hope that true Justice prevails and that Homicide Squad have absolutely dotted their I's and crossed their T's and ensured any & all evidence has been obtained with total legality.
