A man accused of murdering his wife asked two women if they wanted a threesome a few weeks after the teenage bride went missing, a Sydney jury has been told.
The women testified they visited their friend Steve Fesus to offer him their support after hearing of his wife’s disappearance in August 1997.
“He said: ‘I have got a bottle of champagne in the fridge – why don’t you two get on the floor and we can have a threesome?” said witness Kim Duncan in the NSW Supreme Court on Thursday.
Fesus, 46, has pleaded not guilty to murdering Jodie Fesus, 18, in August 1997 at their Shellharbour home, on the NSW south coast, before burying her body in a shallow grave at Seven Mile Beach, near Gerroa.
The crown has alleged their relationship had deteriorated and that he strangled her during an argument.
Police found the beach grave and exhumed her body on September 15, 1997 after receiving an anonymous call from a male.
