    A man's bound body, along with a mattress, has been found in Bali. He was inside a plastic bag, and his throat had been cut. Police at first said he was Australian, but have now amended that and say the victim is British and used to live in Australia. He is married to an Indonesian woman, lives in Bali and is thought to have died early Monday.

    'A forensics doctor at Bali's Sanglah Hospital, Ida Bagus Putu Alit, said there were three cuts to the man's neck, one of which severed a vein and killed him.
    The man's legs and arms were tied and he had bruises to his face and body.'

    THE wife of a man found murdered in Bali has confessed to ordering a hit on her husband and has tonight been declared a suspect in his grisly death. And police in Bali say that one of his killers has been arrested.
    Police said it would be alleged that Robert Kelvin Ellis’ wife, Julaikah Noor Aini, paid to have her husband murdered for many reasons, including claims that he often cheated on her.

    Heck. Police got a confession quick. But I saw on our thread for Sheila Mack's murder in Bali, that the justice system is more beneficial to those who confess their crimes and apologize, so maybe she's aware of this?

    Condolences to the family of Robert Ellis. Rest in peace.

    Wife who has confessed to ordering the hit is saying unfavourable things about her husband, but others are saying the opposite, in Australia.

    ' Ross and Katherine Taylor, of Perth, say they've known the couple for years, and are thinking of their children at this time."We are coming to terms with this tragedy only very slowly," said Mr Taylor, who is the president of the Perth-based Indonesia Institute.

    Mr Taylor said Mr Ellis was a very successful businessman who had lived in Indonesia for many years and was well liked.'

    I'd like to know if he had an insurance policy on his life, and who the beneficiary is.

    It sounds absolutely brutal, how terrible. I assume the sons are not this woman's children as well.

    Sons of Aussie slain in Bali remember dad

    October 22, 2014

    THE sons of an Australian man whose slashed body was found in a Bali rice field in a killing allegedly ordered by their mother say they are "completely devastated".

    JOHN and Peter Ellis, both students of Perth's Edith Cowan University, say their businessman father Robert, 60, was a huge influence in their lives.

    The sons, due to arrive in Bali on Friday, released a statement paying tribute to their father.

    Noor Ellis asked for a divorce twice, slain husband Bob begged her to stay

    October 25, 2014

    THE woman accused of masterminding the murder of her Australian husband Robert Ellis in Bali told police that she had twice asked him for a divorce this year but he begged her not to go ahead.

    Noor Ellis claims the marriage was in trouble and in June this year she lodged divorce proceedings with the Denpasar District Court but withdrew the application after her husband begged her.

    Then, early this month Mrs Ellis claims she again sought a divorce and again he begged her to stay with him.

    The 45-year-old businesswoman denies the police allegations that she masterminded her husband of 25 years’ death by paying a group of five men a total of 150 Million Rupiah or $A14,200 to slit his throat in their Sanur villa in Bali a week ago. If charged with premeditated murder she faces the death penalty.

    Mrs Ellis’ version of events is vastly different to the police case, which is that she ordered the hit on her husband.

    At first, I thought it was one of those "rich and old married young and poor", but it seems they have been married for a long time (25 years), and have an age gap that is not too terrible (15 years). It is just baffling how murder is preferred to divorce.
