Melbourne Killer Dad Sentence Due Over Omelette Row
A Melbourne Father Is Due to be sentenced for the murder of his son.
A Melbourne father who killed his son after an argument about a burnt omelette will find out how long he will spend behind bars for the crime.
Peter John Smith pleaded guilty in the Supreme Court in August to fatally shooting his son Andrew Thomas Smith.
The pair fought after Smith's son tossed a burnt omelette on the ground, upsetting the older man who thought the dog might get sick.
The pair wrestled on the ground before Smith, aged in his 70s, grabbed a shotgun and fired twice at his son's chest while he was lying in bed.
He is due to be sentenced for the murder, which happened a week before Christmas in 2017, on Wednesday.
