The partner of Nick Martin’s stepdaughter, who was shot in the arm when the former Rebels boss was killed at Perth Motorplex, will remain behind bars after his request for parole was refused.
Mr Martin, 51, was fatally shot by a suspected sniper while watching the Outlaw Nitro Challenge at the Kwinana racing venue with his wife and stepdaughter about 8.40pm on December 12.
Ricky Chapman, who was sitting behind Mr Martin, was struck in the arm by the bullet.
Chapman was taken into custody by Operation Ravello officers three days after the shooting for allegedly breaching his parole conditions by associating with bikies.
The return to prison order saw the 31-year-old miss Mr Martin’s funeral and last Thursday the Prisoners Review Board once again denied Chapman his freedom.
“The board afforded you an opportunity to explain the breach, and any proposals that would strengthen your parole plan before determining whether you are suitable for re-release to parole,” the board’s decision read.
“The board … must have regard to the safety of the community, taking into account all information regarding the matter, including reported information and previous criminal history, using the information to make findings of the risk you pose to the safety of the community based on whatever evidence is available, or might reasonably be inferred.
