Bill Rowe's killer back in jail after committing a "terrifying house raid"

Amanda Banks and Gabrielle Knowles for the West Australian: 

"The man jailed for killing farmer Bill Rowe with a cricket bat at a Geraldton beach on Christmas Day in 2007 is in jail again after a burglary that "absolutely petrified" a woman who was at home alone."

  • Mathew McDonald was given only five years for his original offence. 
  • He never applied for parole while service that sentence.  
  • He is now back in jail after another home invasion.
