ANTHONY RICHARD DENT

ANTHONY Richard Dent has been charged for Mayfield man Tony O'Grady's murder after he spent almost a month on the run.

Dent was last week tracked down to a house in Cessnock, where Newcastle detectives arrested him.

Newcastle Local Court heard Dent had lured Mr O'Grady to a Wickham park on March 26 on the promise of a party.

As Mr O'Grady walked across Thomas Armstrong Oval, he was allegedly bashed, tied up, gagged and left for dead.

Also, Sidney Regan, 49, of Hamilton, has been charged with concealing a serious offence, and a juvenile has been charged with assisting Dent with robbery, and stealing.
