    A premeditated murder is simply absurd. An unplanned spontaneous murder is just as unbelievable - defence #badenclay
    He was under financial pressure - defence #badenclay

    Katrina Blowers ‏@katrinablowers 50s
    Defence says jury should take note that #badenclay 's tears flowed when reliving life with Allison and her disappearance. @7NewsBrisbane

    Sarah Elks ‏@sarahelks 55s
    Defence: Gerard was calm under cross-exam, only emotion was tears when he recalled life with Allison, and her disappearance. #badenclay

    If passion were not the motive, what about money? #badenclay

    He's an active member of the community, would he use money as a motive. It's ridiculous - defence #badenclay

    He's got to be kidding! Money is the oldest motive in the book....LOL

    Byrne says Gerard was an accountant with accountant mates. They don't say this was financial pressure "bearing down on him". #badenclay

    "It's ridiculous" says Michael Byrne about the notion #badenclay would kill his wife because of financial difficulties. @9NewsBrisbane


    Katrina Blowers ‏@katrinablowers 52s
    Defence says using financial difficulties as a motive for Allison's murder is 'ridiculous'. #badenclay @7NewsBrisbane


    David Murray ‏@TheMurrayD 1m
    The evidence does not disclose such financial difficulties, any bailiffs banging on the door - defence #badenclay
    He's an accountant, his mates know their way around an account - defence
    Friends don't say he had financial pressure bearing down on him - defence #badenclay

    Sarah Greenhalgh ‏@GreenhalghSarah 54s
    Defence: "Money, is that a reasonable motive for killing your wife of fourteen years? It's ridiculous." #badenclay @tennewsqld

    Defence: Pre-meditated murder simply absurd. Unplanned, spontaneous murder just as unbelievable #badenclay (@liztilley84)

    Defence says money as murder motive is "ridiculous". "Gee, I've got (financial) difficulties. I might kill my wife." #badenclay

    12:44pm: Mr Byrne said Ms McHugh was "wallpaper" and "artefact" and therefore not a motive for murder.

    "It's cruel ... but that's what she was," Mr Byrne said.


    12:47pm:

    Mr Byrne said Mr Baden-Clay was not one to "rise to great passion and explode" in a temper.

    He said his client remained calm even as he was cross-examined and repeated accused of killing his wife by seasoned Crown prosecutor Todd Fuller QC.

    Caroline Overington ‏@overingtonc 42s

    It suggests that while a lot was owed, much was also owned #badenclay

    That has got to be the most absurd thing said during the whole trial!
