Murder plot accused to plead guilty on traffic offences

THE man accused of plotting with a Tweed Heads fish and chip shop manager to murder the store's landlord is expected to enter guilty pleas to some separate minor offences.

Brisbane Magistrates Court heard on Monday that Trent Daniel Habershon would enter four guilty pleas to traffic offences via video-link on July 11.

The court heard police were still analysing a computer police seized from co-accused Joseph Palermo's Tweed Heads home. His case was adjourned until June 16.

Mr Habershon and his co-accused Joseph Palermo are facing conspiracy to murder charges after police intercepted concerning phone conversations between the two.

It is understood a dispute between Palermo and the landlord had occurred after he was locked out of his seafood shop over unpaid rent.

Police caught the two men outside the landlord's home in the Brisbane suburb of Clayfield during an early morning sting in January this year.

A police search of their car uncovered a shotgun, two large zip ties, a knife, a baton and printed emails detailing the landlord's movements.
