Walker was found guilty of manslaughter.

At the start of the trial in February, all four pleaded not guilty.

Thrupp attempted to plead guilty to manslaughter, but the prosecution refused to accept it.

Ms Triscaru’s and Mr Breton’s remains were found 18 days after they were reported missing.

They had been placed into a toolbox which had been tossed into a Logan dam.

All four will be sentenced on Monday.
