The incident came after a brawl escalated when Hishmeh intervened in a fight between Mr Cummins' group of friends and her family, and later was led to believe one of the boys had injured her younger sister.

As a result, she took off in a car to find the boys she believed to be responsible for her sister's injuries and ploughed into them at an estimated speed of more than 70km/h.

Four of the boys were injured and Mr Cummins died at the scene.

The jury was asked to decide whether Hishmeh intended to murder Mr Cummins, or whether she unlawfully killed him by driving dangerously.

Hishmeh had previously pleaded not guilty to the murder and attempted murder charges, but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of dangerous driving causing death.

Prosecutor Les Hobson argued Hishmeh's intent was clear, with CCTV footage from nearby houses showing the high-powered car mount the curb and hit the boys on Eucalyptus Boulevard.

But Hishmeh's defence lawyer Anthony Elliott said the prosecution could not firmly prove intent.

"She doesn’t say, 'I’m happy that’s done, they got what they deserved, I wanted to kill them', Mr Elliott said, referring to Hishmeh's police interview.

"She says: ‘I didn’t mean to’."

As the two-week trial culminated on Friday afternoon Mr Elliott warned the court Hishmeh may faint when the verdict was delivered, however she did not.
