The remains of Australian hero/criminal Ned Kelly, who killed three policemen in 1880 and famously had a stand-off where he wore home-made metal armour, will be turned over to his descendants for burial.
The headless remains of Kelly, who led a gang in Victoria in the late 1800s, were identified last November through DNA tests.
The bones were found in a mass grave outside the former Pentridge Prison.
The site’s property developers wanted to keep the remains but Kelly’s family wanted the bones returned.
State officials have issued a new licence for exhumation, which means that the developers will not be able to keep the remains for display in a museum, Australian media reported.
