Samurai sword killer’s fiancée is spared jail over death of drugged-up home invader

A woman who helped her samurai sword-wielding boyfriend after he killed a Sydney home invader has avoided any jail time.

Hannah Quinn, 26, was sentenced to a two-year community corrections order after she was found guilty of being an accessory after the fact.

Blake Davis was jailed for at least two years and three months after chasing and striking the ice-fuelled armed robber Jet McKee in the head with a sword in Forest Lodge in August 2018.

The 31-year-old was acquitted of murder but found guilty of the hip-hop artist’s manslaughter.

Quinn assisted Davis including cleaning up her partner’s eye, checking into and paying for overnight accommodation in the city and at Pennant Hills.

The length of her accessorial assistance was less than 48 hours, and was at ‘the very lowest end of the range of seriousness,’ her defence submitted.

Justice Natalie Adams accepted Quinn stuck with the ‘love of her life’ out of misguided loyalty and because of her emotional attachment.

‘Nothing she did that weekend showed any plan to indefinitely go on the run,’ Justice Adams said.
