August 09, 2017

Maxwell Pain was suffering a delusional disorder when he fatally shot his son-in-law.

A "suspicious and jealous" Victorian man who murdered his son-in-law believing he was having an affair with his wife has been jailed for 23 years.

Maxwell John Pain, 55, armed himself with two guns before driving to the Raywood home of his wife's daughter and son-in-law David Paris, 36, in June 2014.

During sentencing on Wednesday, the Supreme Court of Victoria was told the farmer was suffering a delusional disorder, suspecting his wife of infidelity with nearly "any man who looked at her" when he fatally shot Mr Paris.
