A man charged with murdering a Melbourne crime patriarch has been rushed to hospital suffering a suspected stroke after collapsing in a Melbourne court dock.
The pre-trial committal hearing for three men charged with the murder of Lewis Moran, patriarch of a key crime family, was supposed to start at the Melbourne Magistrates' Court today.
Keith Faure, 54, who is charged with Moran's murder, collapsed in the dock as the committal hearing started this morning and was taken to hospital by ambulance.
His lawyer, James Montgomery, told the court his client had complained of vomiting blood and had suffered a possible stroke.
The only stroke he's has is hand-on-cock.
Meanwhile, back in court, modern day Kath Pettingill:
Moran's widow Judy, sat silently in the front row of the public gallery of the court as the drama unfolded.
On the other side of town, doctors work frantically to save the life of a poor individual:
However, Noel Faure was not in court and his lawyer told the magistrate his client was ill and in hospital.
Noel Faure suffered injuries after he slashed his wrists and swallowed a set of nail clippers last week, a Barwon Prison has spokesman said.
Heart wrenching, action packed stuff...
