Charles McKenzie Ross Evans: The Man Who Killed His Partner Moves To Qld
The grieving family of a murdered Victorian woman is outraged that her murderer is starting a new life near her neighborhood.
The grieving family of the slain Victorian woman Alicia Little are outraged that her killer is starting a new life near their Queensland neighborhood – after spending less than three years in prison for the shocking death of the woman.
Charles McKenzie Ross Evans, Ms Little’s former partner, was jailed for four years after violently running her down in a Kyneton house in December 2017.
But he was released from prison in 2020 after serving two and a half years behind bars, having recently moved near the Queensland neighborhood of Ms Little’s family.
Ms Little’s family members expressed their anger upon hearing of Evans’ move, saying it was “scary” to know he was only a short drive from their home.
“I have family who live on the same street,” said Alicia’s brother Bronson Little. A topical matter.
“How in the name of God can a convicted felon get permission to move to Queensland in these present times when a family member … (who) just lost someone on the other side of the border can not even cross the state to enter? “
Mr Little revealed that he had to change jobs because Evans and his family worked in the same industry.
Evans was initially charged with murder following Ms Little’s death, which occurred after she tried to end the abusive relationship.
In the resulting attack, Evans struck Ms. Little and crushed her between her vehicle and a water tank.
He eventually pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing death and failure to assist after his charges were demoted.
Evans was jailed for four years for Ms Little’s death but was paroled in 2020, moving to New South Wales.
A spokeswoman for Queensland Correctives said he was not under surveillance while living in the Sunshine State.
The spokeswoman said the Queensland government would always “prioritize the victim” of any crime and relatives of the victim could be placed on a support registry.
“The victim registry offers victims a range of supports and helps authorities make decisions about the appropriate accommodation of parolees,” the spokesperson said.
“The conditions imposed on an individual upon release are the responsibility of the parole authority of the competent jurisdiction. “
The Littles are now campaigning for a national domestic violence registry to prevent potential future incidents.
“I want a national database across Australia,” Alicia’s mother Lee Little said.
