    I hope the title of this topic is OK, mods feel free to change as needed, just thought I would need to careful as the circumstance of her death is being disputed by the accused in the current trial.

    Accused forced fiancee to 'submit to his will', court told

    The court heard that as Mr Gittany became more possessive, he convinced the younger woman to completely change her style of dress, convert to Catholicism and to leave her job at a hairdressing salon because the staff there were ''polluting her mind''.

    He then allegedly estranged her from her friends, and would demand to know where she was at all times.

    ''He convinced the deceased that he was a person of superior moral and religious depth,'' Mr Tedeschi said. ''As a female it was her function in life to submit to his will as the male in their relationship.

    ''The deceased's self-confidence became more and more diminished as she became convinced that the accused was a person of superior moral integrity to herself.''

    I can't find an article anywhere that says what area/province/city Lisa was from in Canada. Does anyone here know?

    "Another witness walking near The Hyde apartment block on Liverpool Street told police he saw a shirtless man holding what appeared to be black luggage horizontally over the balcony before it fell over.

    "Of course, it was not a piece of luggage, it was Ms Harnum wearing black clothing," Crown prosecutor Mark Tedeschi QC said at Monday's opening of the murder trial."

    Man accused of murdering ballerina fiancee avoids jury trial

    18 Oct, 2013

    "Alleged murderer Simon Gittany has run out of money to fund his high-profile defence, telling a court he is at risk of having to represent himself.

    The legal bill for the 39-year-old, who denies throwing his ballerina fiancee Lisa Harnum off the balcony of their Hyde Park apartment, is set to approach $500,000 despite him dropping one senior counsel.

    He was a granted a judge-alone trial, to begin on Monday, because it would be two weeks shorter than a trial by jury, allowing him to save money on legal representation by solicitor Abigail Bannister.

    Mr Gittany has been refused legal aid because he doesn't meet the requirements."

    Chyeah.. I was looking the new girlfriend's picture last night, thinking exactly the same thing - and wondering how she can think he'll be any different toward her...

    I think he murdered Lisa, hands down guilty, and I also think he somehow thinks he's going to get away with it.

    Seriously, if this guy doesn't do life in jail, I'm emigrating to somewhere with a better grip on the concept of justice.
