A learner driver has been jailed for dragging a man more than 80 metres under his car and leaving him to die in 2019.

Floyd Hennessy, 22, and friend Brandon Cummings, 20, were in a Dingley Village street, south-east of Melbourne, in the early hours of December 20.
They were trying to steal work tools from parked cars, the court heard.
Cummings was given a three-year community based order, and must also complete 250 hours of unpaid work. (Nine)

Hennessy said he wanted to sell the tools and use the money to buy Christmas presents for his family.

The two men didn’t know that Peter Stojanovic was at a friend’s party on Toorak Drive, when he noticed the would-be thieves on CCTV.

As the young men drove away, Stojanovic jumped onto the bonnet of their Holden Commodore.

The 53-year-old slid up onto the roof and held on to the roof racks as Hennessy sped along Toorak Drive.

The court heard that Hennessy quickly accelerated, Cummings, in the passenger seat, urged his friend to “shake the car” and “tap the brakes”.

Hennessy then reversed backwards, Stojanovic fell onto the road and was dragged 80 metres by the car.

Hennessy and Cummings left him to die on the road and later hid the car in bushes before heading home.

Justice Amanda Fox jailed Hennessy for seven years for culpable driving.

He will serve a minimum of four years and three months before being eligible for parole.

Cummings was given a three-year community based order, and must also complete 250 hours of unpaid work.

The victim’s partner, Janine Weiss, left the Supreme Court in tears.

“They didn’t go out to kill anyone, but it’s ruined their lives, and mine,” she said.

“Peter had a heart of gold, I adored him.”
