Court hears accused told associate to cut off man's penis
EMOTIONAL family members of murdered Maryborough man Noel Allen Clark came face-to-face with their loved one's accused killer in the Maryborough Supreme Court on Monday.
Graeme Kenneth Wright is charged with murdering Mr Clark on May 25, 2009, just a few weeks after finding out that Mr Clark was in a relationship with his ex-girlfriend Kylie Mackney.
Prosecutor Vicki Loury, who described Wright as "obsessive" and "jealous" in her opening statement, called several family members of Mr Clark to give evidence including his mother, aunty and cousin and also Ms Mackney.
Ms Mackney told the court Wright had made threats against Mr Clark's life in the weeks preceding his death.
On May 25, the day Wright and two associates are alleged to have lured Mr Clark to a Maryborough home and bludgeoned him to death, she was expecting him at her Murgon home.
The court heard that after allegedly murdering Mr Clark, the accused man told one of his associates to cut off Mr Clark's penis.
His body has not been located.
The trial before Justice Ann Lyons continues.
