POLICE believe DNA found on a gun that was probably used to kill underworld figure Des Moran belongs to a man charged with his murder.

The Melbourne Magistrates Court heard Geoffrey Armour’s DNA was likely to be one of four samples found on the pistol probably used to kill Mr Moran at a cafe in Ascot Vale on June 15.

Armour, his de facto wife Suzanne Kane, 45, and gangland widow Judy Moran, 64, are all charged with the murder.

Mr Moran had survived an earlier attempt on his life in March. The court was told tests on clothing discarded by the offender in that attempt also showed DNA believed to be Armour’s.

A police affidavit tendered in court said witnesses formally identified Armour as being one of two males who ran from the killing at Ascot Vale.

Afterwards, Armour allegedly made several phone calls to Kane and Moran during which they had coded discussions about disposing of various items, the affidavit said.
