Police will allege that the 42-year-old man who was today charged with Hayden Burnes' murder was driving the car seen at the scene of the crime.
Hayden Burnes, 15, suffered severe stab wounds at an industrial estate at Marieanne Place, Minchinbury, about 8.30am on Monday, December 5, and died as a result of his injuries.
Detective Superintendent Michael Willing said at a press conference held earlier today that he expected the accused would be charged in relation to the murder later today.
"We will be allegeing that the man arrested today was the person driving the vehicle before and after Hayden's death," he said.
Police arrested the 42-year-old man earlier this year at The Entrance but released him. A 36-year-old man was arrested last month and is before the courts.
A car was seized by investigators in May and police will now allege it was the vehicle used in the murder.
Detective superintendent Willing said at this point we have no information to suggest the two accused men had any links to bikie gangs.
He said police would be on guard when the accused men faced court after Hayden's father and his Lone Wolf bikie asociates appeared at court for the last matter and created a scene.
"Obviously its a very emotional and emotion-charged issue but we can't walk away from the fact that a 15-year-old boy lost his life," he said.
Strike Force Lemongrove was formed to investigate Hayden’s death, and is led by the Homicide Squad with assistance from St Marys, Mt Druitt, Penrith and Tuggerah Lakes police.
About 7.20am today, Thursday, September 6, police arrested a 42-year-old man at an address in Hurstville.
The man, formerly of The Entrance, was taken to Hurstville Police Station and charged with murder. He has been refused bail to face Sutherland Local Court today.
Investigations are continuing and detectives have not ruled out making further arrests.
