Man found guilty of pregnant teen’s murder
RODNEY Wayne Williams has been found guilty of the murder of pregnant teen Tiffany Taylor.
Williams, 65, has been on trial in the Brisbane Supreme Court over the murder of the 16-year-old girl at Waterford West on July 12, 2015.
He pleaded not guilty to killing the teen, who was 15 weeks pregnant when she was allegedly murdered.
Williams will be sentenced this afternoon.
Crown Prosecutor Phil McCarthy QC previously told a Queensland jury Tiffany Taylor's body has never been found, her bank accounts have not been touched and she has not made a Medicare claim since before July 2015.
"Tiffany did not disappear without leaving any trace," he said, saying the girl's blood was found in Williams car on the glovebox, gearstick and front passenger seat.
"Traces of her blood were found in this car when examined by a forensic scientist on the 4th August 2015.
"It is... the car owned by Rodney Williams and it was driven by him on July 12, 2015.
