Quade Jones, 28, is accused of initiating a “cowardly, unprovoked and disgusting” attack on Emiliano Lombardi on August 16.

The 84-year-old was assaulted after going outside his house to investigate a noise, before unknowingly coming into the path of two men on a random and violent crime spree.

He was attacked with a car mirror on his front lawn and was in the intensive care unit at Royal Perth Hospital, surrounded by his devastated family, for two weeks before passing away on August 31.
