The trial of Echuca woman Tracey Kerr, who has been charged with murder, began in Melbourne this week.May 2, 2014 3:34am
The trial of an Echuca woman facing a charge of murder has started in the Victorian Supreme Court.
Tracey Kerr, 42, is accused of murdering Echuca man Doug Barrett in May 2012.
Ms Kerr had faced the court before, but Justice Elizabeth Hollingworth discharged the jury in October last year due to a legal technicality.
Yesterday, Crown prosecutor Peter Rose, QC, addressed the jury, describing the night Mr Barrett died.
Shane Tyrell, who is defending Ms Kerr, also addressed the jury.
The court also heard evidence from Mr Barrett’s wife Hazel and a witness who cannot be named as part of a court-imposed suppression order.
The trial continues.
