Update for cop accused of murdering gay couple Jesse Baird and Luke Davies

Accused killer cop Beau Lamarre-Condon will return to court next month after he was charged with murdering his former lover and his new boyfriend.

Police allege he used his service firearm to fatally shoot Channel 10 presenter Jesse Baird and his boyfriend Qantas flight attendant Luke Davies at a Paddington terrace in Sydney on February 19.

The men’s bodies were found inside surfboard bags that had been buried in a shallow grave on a remote property near Goulburn, in the NSW Southern Tablelands, after a week-long search.

Police allege the murders occurred after a pattern of “predatory” behaviour by Mr Lamarre-Condon, who had been in a brief relationship with Mr Baird months before his death.

On Tuesday, the 28-year-old did not appear via audiovisual in Sydney Downing Centre Court, where he was represented by his lawyer John Walford.

Crown prosecutor Brendan Donnelly asked the court for a month-long adjournment before the charges are expected to be certified.

The court was told a request for documents under a subpoena had not been fulfilled.

The case will return to court in August.

Mr Walford previously flagged that the mental health of his client could play a part in the case.

Mr Lamarre-Condon had been serving as a senior constable at the time of the alleged murders. He has since been dismissed from the NSW Police Force.

The 28-year-old has been in custody on remand since he was charged with two counts of murder after handing himself into police on February 23.

After his arrest, police allege he provided information to investigators that led to the discovery of Mr Baird and Mr Davies’ bodies at the rural property near Goulburn.
