Man admits to murder role
Michael Pruiti.

A man has admitted being an accessory to murder over the death of Michael Paul Pruiti before being granted bail this morning.

Christian Gillmore, 32, entered a guilty plea in the Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court, watched by Mr Pruiti's relatives.

Two others - Daniel Michael Marchesano and Ben Mansfield - also appeared by videolink from prison where they are on remand on charges of murder over Mr Pruiti's death. They did not enter pleas.

Gillmore was granted bail with no opposition from prosecutors following his guilty plea.

His conditions of release include personal bail of $50,000 and a similar surety, reporting to police, and a ban on contacting any witnesses.

Mr Pruiti, 31, had last been seen in Forrestfield on October 23, with his disappearance treated by police as a homicide after he failed to touch his bank accounts or contact his concerned family.

His car was found burnt at Mundaring Weir bushland and his remains were discovered in Karragullen bush in December.

A pre-sentence report was ordered for the court in preparation for Gillmore's sentencing.

Mr Marchesano and Mr Mansfield remain custody and had their cases adjourned to March 26.
