Man jailed for 12 years for shooting ex’s new boyfriend
A MAN who hired a private investigator to follow his former girlfriend from the Gold Coast to Ipswich and Toowoomba has been jailed for more than 12 years for attempting to murder the woman's new partner.
Earlier this year a jury found Robert Kingsley Corowa, 34, guilty of shooting Marko Marjanovic in the shoulder outside a Gold Coast home in November 2011.
On Wednesday, Corowa was sentenced to 12 years and 228 days in jail for attempted murder.
Corowa fired a pump-action shotgun at Mr Marjanovic who had walked out of his mother's house.
Earlier that day, Mr Marjanovic's partner - who was Corowa's former girlfriend - had picked him up from Toowoomba after he had been working out near Roma.
During the trial, the jury was told Corowa and a private investigator had followed the woman from the Gold Coast to Ipswich and Toowoomba that day, and continued following her car as she drove back to the Gold Coast with Mr Marjanovic.
During his sentence at Brisbane Supreme Court on Wednesday, Corowa was also officially convicted of a serious violent offence. - ARM NEWSDESK
