Melbourne mother pleads guilty to murdering greyhound trainer

Jessie Moore appeared in Melbourne Magistrates’ Court today, pleading guilty to one count of murder.

The court previously heard Moore may have an intellectual disability.

Friend and chair of Greyhound Racing Victoria, Peita Duncan, previously described Ms Leek as a “fantastic person” loved by the whole racing community.

“She was an amazing person, it’s such a massive loss for us,” she said.

“She has taught many, many people in this industry over her whole career.

“It’s devastating for our industry and it’s rocked us to our core.”

Greyhound Racing Victoria, in a statement on its website, said Ms Leek was one of the industry’s most “respected” trainers.

“The greyhound racing community is devastated by the shock news that Karen Leek has passed away, aged 69,” the statement read.

“Karen was one of the most respected people in greyhound racing, recognised for her success as a breeder, rearer and trainer.”

Moore will appear in Victoria’s Supreme Court next month.
