Gerard Baden-Clay murder trial: Jury sees Allison Baden-Clay journal, including notes on affair
The jury in Gerard Baden-Clay’s murder trial has been shown excerpts from his wife Allison’s journal, including an entry reading: “Do you regret the whole thing or just being caught?”
Baden-Clay, a 43-year-old former real estate agent, has pleaded not guilty to killing his wife in April 2012.
The body of the 43-year-old mother of three was found by a kayaker on a creek bank under a bridge about 10 kilometres from the couple’s Brookfield home on Brisbane’s west side, 10 days after she was reported missing.
The journal pages were presented to the Supreme Court today by Detective Senior Constable Cameron McLeod, the officer who arrested Baden-Clay.
He said the journal was found during a search of the couple’s bedroom after she disappeared.
Sentences included “Were you prepared to live with the guilt if I hadn’t found out”, “Let me believe it was all my fault and there I’m at your mercy” and “How many people in the office knew that you knew?”
Earlier today, the court heard Baden-Clay told an officer to “keep your voice down” when discussing his marital problems in the wake of Allison’s disappearance.
Sergeant Greg Matthies told the court he set up a forward command post at Brookfield Showgrounds on April 21, 2012.
He said Baden-Clay turned up at the command post and their conversation was recorded.
In the recording, which was played at the trial, Baden-Clay went through what he said happened on April 19 and 20, 2012.
He said it was not unusual that Allison was gone when he got up, as she went walking about three times a week.
“I just want to do whatever I can do to find her,” he said.
Baden-Clay said Allison was trying to lose weight and wanted to look good for a family holiday in a couple of weeks.
When asked if Allison was in a frame of mind where she would do anything to herself, Baden-Clay replied: “No.”
“We’ve had our ups and downs but she’s been predominantly up,” he said.
In the interview, the officer says he had heard there were marital problems.
Baden-Clay replied: “Can you keep your voice down”.
Blood in car belonged to Allison, court told
Forensic scientist Amanda Reeves tested a swab of blood taken by police from Allison’s four-wheel-drive after she disappeared belonged to Allison.
Ms Reeves told the court the DNA matched Allison and the possibility it belonged to someone else was one-in-5,600 billion.
She said blood from a towel in the bathroom matched the accused and the possibility it belonged to someone else was one-in-590,000 billion.
She also tested Allison’s fingernails and found low-level DNA from a possible second source but it was not suitable for comparison.
Ms Reeves said she tested scrapings from Gerard Baden-Clay’s fingernails and found the possible presence of a second source, but again it was too low to compare.
