Williams’ stepdaughter bailed on shooting

The stepdaughter of slain Melbourne gangland boss Carl Williams was willing to take part in the attempted murder of a man she hardly knew, a court has heard.

Danielle Stephens, her de facto partner Sanar Ghanim and another man, Tugay Afacan, have been charged with attempted murder after a 22-year-old man was shot in Broadmeadows on Monday night.

Police opposed Stephens’ bail application on the grounds she would pose a danger to public safety and the victim.

“She was not well known to him and she was still willing to participate in an attempted murder,” Detective Senior Constable Matthew Walsh told the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Friday.

Defence counsel Emma Turnbull said the prosecution did not have any evidence of a prior agreement between the three co-accused before the incident.

“There’s no evidence that Miss Stephens had anything to do at all with discharging the firearm,” Ms Turnbull told the court.

Stephens, 22, of Lalor, was released on bail under strict conditions, including that she live with her father and not contact the victim or either of the co-accused.

Williams’ ex-wife Roberta Williams said her daughter was in custody but she did not have any other information.

“I will stand by my daughter and we will get through this,” Ms Williams told News Corp Australia before the court appearance.

Stephens has been charged with attempted murder, intentionally causing serious injury, recklessly causing serious injury and causing serious injury.

Ghanim, 25 and also from Lalor, faces the same charges as well as drugs and weapons offences.

Afacan, 23, of Taylors Lakes, appeared in court on Thursday charged with attempted murder.

Police allege Stephens drove her father’s car to an industrial street in Broadmeadows late on Monday night, where Afacan fired a shotgun at the victim.

The victim had arranged to meet Afacan to sort out a verbal dispute, Det Sen Const Walsh told the court.

He now has 22 shotgun pellets lodged in his face, chest, arms and groin, the court heard.

Police allege Stephens and Ghanim were sitting in a BMW when the victim arrived.

Afacan, who was behind the BMW, came towards the victim with a silver shotgun and fired, Det Sen Const Walsh told the court.

As the victim got back into his car, he heard Ghanim shout “Shoot him again”, Det Sen Const Walsh said.

He said the victim thought the assault was out of proportion to the dispute.

“He’s extremely emotionally traumatised in relation to what happened,” Det Sen Const Walsh said.

Ms Turnbull told the court Stephens had no prior convictions and could not be shown to have personally possessed the firearm.

Stephens, Ghanim and Afacan will return to the Melbourne Magistrates Court for a committal mention on February 6 next year.
