Mother whose son arranged the heinous murder by his & # 39; very manipulative & # 39; girlfriend tells court that she & # 39; oceans of tears & # 39; has cried and she wants to kill the woman
- Father Paul Hogan was shot dead in the face in 2016 by an unnamed shooter
- His 29-year-old partner was found guilty of murder after telling a man to kill him
- Mr. Hogan's mother said the partner & # 39; very manipulative & # 39; and wants her dead
The mother of a man whose murder was organized by a & # 39; very manipulative and totally unfair & # 39; woman says she is in pain every day & # 39; as if being shot in the chest like a gun & # 39 ;.
In February, a jury from the Supreme Court found Yu Tung Lo, 29, guilty of murdering her partner, Bacchus Marsh father Paul Hogan, on 24 May 2016.
Lo encouraged another man, who cannot be called for legal reasons, to murder the 48-year-old who died after being shot in the open area.

She told the shooter that Mr. Hogan had repeatedly raped her and threatened to rape the shooter's young daughter.
In the run-up to the murder, Lo and the shooter exchanged text messages, with Lo against the man who they & # 39; the & # 39; wanted to die.
Lawyers argued during Tuesday's pre-sentence hearing about whether Justice Paul Coghlan should approve Lo's accusations when sentencing her.
She pleaded guilty on Tuesday for an additional allegation of perjury and admitted that she had lied about things, including that she had never voluntarily had sex with Mr. Hogan, and when she last saw him, he was still alive.
Mrs. Hogan, the mother of the late Paul Hogan, used Lo & # 39; s words against her. She wants to see Lo & # 39; dead & # 39; just as Lo wanted to see her son dead
But attorney-lawyer Peter Chadwick QC said Justice Coghlan should accept that Lo was sexually abused, so prosecutor Peter Bourke replied that Mr. Hogan was no longer alive to refute that accusation.
& # 39; It is clear that the relationship was tumultuous and it was characterized by violence, & # 39; said Justice Coghlan.
A statement from Mr. Hogan & # 39; s mother Val Hogan was read to the court on Tuesday, saying she & # 39; oceans of tears & # 39; has called and has nightmares about her son being shot.
While her statement was being read, Mrs. Hogan stared at Lo, sitting in the dock.

& # 39; People have asked me what I would like to happen to you. I answer: & # 39; I want it dead & # 39 ;, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; The pain that I feel every day is like being shot in the coffin with a gun and there is no relief for me.
& # 39; We have not served any time, or conditional release, we just have the duration of our natural life. & # 39;
Bourke said that Lo Mr. Hogan & # 39; both in her mind and in the spirit of the shooter to a & # 39; it reduced & # 39; & # 39;
& # 39; She was very manipulative and completely unfair in the steps she took to attack the shooter, which she knew was particularly vulnerable to her plea to kill Mr. Hogan, he said.
Lo will be sentenced on May 3.
