Violent murderer flings poo at prison guards in latest disgusting crime

A murderer who once broke out of jail to kill a detective has been given a fresh sentence for hurling poo at prison guards.

Jason John Nixon, who is serving an indefinite prison sentence for murdering two fellow inmates at the Brisbane Correctional Centre in Australia, was hauled before the courts on Monday for the disgusting act.

The 50-year-old is one of Australia's most notorious criminals for his 1997 jail break. He broke out of jail alongside bank robber Brenden Abbott and fired a shotgun at the detective who recaptured him.

In 1993 he beat fellow inmate Bart Vosmaer to death with gym weights as part of a group murder in 1993 and was handed his indefinite term for brutally killing murderer Mark Day in 2003.

Nixon has since faced court for a number of assaults on prison guards and appeared in Brisbane Magistrates' Court to answer to his dirty protest.

He appeared via video link from jail and pleaded guilty to two counts of unlawfully assaulting prison guards in October 2019.

Police prosecutor Lauren Collins said Nixon had moved to the back of his cell before throwing faeces at two officers who delivered his lunch.

She said: "At approximately 12.05pm on October 29, 2019 the victims were delivering lunches to the prisoners within the correctional centre.

"The defendant has taken his food box and then rushed back towards the open hatch and has thrown faeces at the victims hitting them on the chest and face area."

Sergeant Collins said Nixon had six pages of "detestable criminal history" and similar offences. These include chucking urine at a jail nurse and leaving a 20cm mark in a guard's arm after attack him with a razor blade.

Magistrate Penelope Hay said Nixon's offending was serious and urged him to consider the fact he will be eligible for parole in 2034.
