A home invader who brutally beat a Sydney pig farmer to death, one month after bashing another householder, is due to be sentenced.
Ryan David Evans, 29, was found guilty in May of murdering his previous employer, Keith Cini, 69, at his Badgerys Creek home in the early hours of May 30, 2014.
The NSW Supreme Court jury also found him guilty of five other offences including savagely beating Brett Delamont in another home invasion on April 28, 2014 at his Medway residence in the NSW Southern Highlands.
Evans told a psychiatrist he began using illicit drugs before he was a teenager and was on ice about the time of the murder.
Mr Cini's partner, Lucina Boldi, gave evidence of the terrifying moment when she was forced to play dead in their home to avoid being beaten to death by a masked intruder.
"I didn't move," she told the jury, saying she had been woken in the early hours to see Mr Cini being attacked by two men in the hallway.
Mr Delamont's wife, Akana Bush, cried while telling the jury of seeing him with a hurt and bloodied head as he lay convulsing beside her after she was woken by masked intruders in their bedroom.
He suffered brain damage and has no recollection of the attack.
Evans is due to be sentenced by Justice Robert Allan Hulme on Friday.
