Appearing in court this morning, the accused gazed around the courtroom but said nothing.

Heavy security was in the courtroom, with the road next to the court blocked off as the prison van left.

The case has been adjourned to April 28.

The accused murderer was arrested by WA Police on Monday in the Perth suburb of Waikiki.

Police also seized a motorbike, a Toyota Prado and a boat.

It is believed Mr Martin was shot from a distance of more than 300m away.

The bullet went straight through the 51-year-old’s chest and into his son-in-law, Ricky Chapman, who was sitting behind him in the stands.

A young boy known to the family was also injured during the shooting.
