Second teen admits servo worker murder
A 19-year-old has admitted to murdering NSW service station worker Zeeshan Akbar just days after his 17-year-old accomplice also pleaded guilty.
The teens, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were aged 15 and 16 when they attacked Mr Akbar inside a Queanbeyan Caltex and left him for dead during a violent rampage on the NSW-ACT border in April 2017.

The older teen pleaded guilty to murder on Monday - just before his judge-alone trial was due to begin.
He also admitted robbery with an offensive weapon causing grievous bodily harm, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and stealing a car during the crime spree.

He was due to face a jury trial last week, but that was scrapped after the younger teen entered pleas of guilty to murder and a carjacking-related charge.
Both teens are due to face a sentencing hearing on October 31.
