Gangster Jason Pikula-Carroll cheers fatal shot - cries at sentencing

Jason Pikula-Carroll, 25, cheered after his associate shot and killed Canberra artist Eden Waugh during a 2016 home invasion. He has been sentenced to 30 years in jail. Eden Waugh was killed because his attackers feared he had spoken to police about an earlier home invasion. As the pair tried to beat down the front door, Peter Forster-Jones fired a shotgun slug through it, hitting Waugh in the chest and killing him. Pikula-Carroll pleaded guilty to the killing and cried like a biatch while reading an apology to Waugh's parents.

Waugh's father David said the murder robbed him of a kind and loving son.
"Eden was not without some faults but his underlying characteristics were his kindness and gentleness."
The two gangsters stepped over a dying Waugh to strip his apartment. In a triple-0 call from the attack, Pikula-Carroll could be heard cheering "gangster" after the fatal shot was fired.

Jason Pikula-Carroll was sentenced to 30 years in prison with a non-parole period of 18 years for murder, aggravated robbery and assault. He will be eligible for parole in 2037.
