Farmer jailed for shooting death of environmental officer
A farmer who shot and killed an environmental officer near Moree, in north-western New South Wales, has been jailed for a minimum of 24 years.
Ian Turnbull was found guilty last month of the 2014 murder of Glen Turner, who was involved in land clearing prosecutions against Turnbull's family, ABC reports.
Turnbull was sentenced to 35 years in prison with a non-parole period of 24 years.
In sentencing, Justice Peter Johnson told the Supreme Court in Sydney that the 81-year-old intended to kill Mr Turner and added the sentence was effectively life due to Tunrbull's age.
