  • Australian Neighbour From Hell

    A MAN whose bizarre behaviour forced his neighbours to sell their home of 35 years was yesterday ordered to undergo anger management.

    Michael Charles Kerr-Morgan stalked the retired couple and their daughter because he thought they made too much noise starting their car.

    Ringwood Magistrates' Court heard a large hole was dug outside the back gate of the Fenwick family's Box Hill South home, faeces and urine were put on their back fence, property was damaged and grass was poisoned over a six-month period starting in August 2001.

    Kerr-Morgan then began banging on the garage wall bordering the two properties when Graham Fenwick started his car each morning.

    A police video shows Kerr-Morgan clad in a balaclava, wielding a piece of wood and pounding the wall.

    Kerr-Morgan, 39, of Boronia, was found guilty of three counts of stalking, four of possessing unregistered firearms and one of criminal damage.

    Magistrate Malcolm Walter said he had displayed an extraordinary course of conduct.

    "You are an intelligent person. You should have known better," Mr Walter told him. He urged Kerr- Morgan to take the opportunity for help on offer.

    Kerr-Morgan was sentenced to a 12-month community-based order where he must do 100 hours of community work and complete an anger management and positive lifestyle course.
