A Hells Angels bikie who was this week extradited from Queensland to be charged over the murder of Jason De Ieso in 2012 has appeared in an Adelaide court for the first time
Kyle Pryde handed himself into police in Queensland after a six-week manhunt and arrived in Adelaide last night.
He was wanted in connection to the murder of Mr De Ieso, who was shot dead at his Pooraka workshop.
Mr Pryde is the seventh man charged over the murder.
The 31-year-old man was remanded in custody to face court again in December.
Outside court, Mr Pryde’s lawyer Frank Barbaro said his client might make an application for bail at a later date.
A warrant for the arrest of Mr Pryde was issued in late August, but was not revealed until mid-September when police sought public help to track him down.
CCTV footage from Mr De Ieso’s Unique Custom Paint and Panel business on the day he was shot shows nine men walking towards the front of the workshop.
Police alleged the men were members of the Hells Angels North Crew and at least six of them were carrying guns.
In August, Mr De Ieso’s parents made an emotional public appeal asking for others to come forward if they had information about their son’s death.
“It’s always with us, it never goes away, and I don’t know why we have to go through this,” Mr De Ieso’s mother Giovanna said.
“He didn’t do anything. He was doing his work.”
