A Sydney solicitor has been charged after she allegedly destroyed evidence connected to the murder of a suspected ice dealer.
Alev Oncu, 28, a criminal lawyer from Blacktown in Sydney’s western suburbs, was arrested on Thursday morning as she stood beside a white BMW sedan.
Police allege Oncu ‘assisted in disposing of critical evidence’ for her client who has been charged with the murder of Craig Anderson, in May this year.
Mr Anderson, an ice dealer, was shot four times outside his Blacktown home, on May 27, and died at the scene.
