Fifth man charged over Sydney teen’s murder

A FIFTH person has been charged over the shooting murder of Sydney teenager Brayden Dillon.

Intruders forced their way into the 15-year-old's home and allegedly shot him in the head as he lay in his bed in Glenfield, in the city's southwest, in the early hours of April 14 in 2017.

He was refused bail and will appear at Central Local Court on Friday. Four people have previously been charged over the murder and they remain before the courts.

Detectives charged Conrad Craig with the teen's murder last July and later that month - a day after what would have been Brayden's 16th birthday - Sophie Massie was also charged with his murder.

Craig's sister, Kimberly Craig, 35, was charged in September with being an accessory to the murder after the fact, knowingly dealing with the proceeds of crime, perverting the course of justice, drug supply and participating in a criminal group.
