Gerard Baden-Clay trial: Accused murderer says lack of sex with wife motivated him to seek out affair

Updated Mon 30 Jun 2014, 8:28pm AEST

Accused murderer Gerard Baden-Clay says a lack of physical intimacy with his wife motivated him to seek out an affair.

The 43-year-old, who is on trial for the murder of his wife Allison, has tearfully told a Brisbane court how he was driven to start the affair after intimacy vanished from his marriage.

Baden-Clay said his sex life with his wife was “non-existent” and he consequently began an affair with a former colleague in the same year his third daughter was born.

By 2005 Allison was taking anti-depressants and the side-effects caused her to gain weight and lose her libido, Baden-Clay said.

He described his first affair with a former colleague from real estate agency Raine and Horne in Kenmore.

“I just wanted sex,” he said through tears.

“Allison and I hadn’t had any sort of physical intimacy for years. It’s not an excuse but that’s why.”

Baden-Clay said the affair ended mutually after about a month because he “felt really bad about it”.

Baden-Clay opens up on Toni McHugh affair

He said his relationship with another colleague Toni McHugh started in August 2008.

Baden-Clay, a former real estate agent, said he and Ms McHugh had been working together for about a year.

“It started one night in the office when we were both working back,” he said.

Baden-Clay said he was in the relationship “primarily for the physical intimacy”, adding that he became concerned when Ms McHugh left her partner.

The accused told the court he had tried to break the relationship off several times with Ms McHugh, who he said became more demanding as time went on.

Baden-Clay said Ms McHugh wanted him to get a divorce. He said he told her “no”, adding that his loyalty was to his wife and children.

The former real estate agent also told the court he was concerned about the impact on his business if he broke the relationship off with Ms McHugh permanently.

Allison’s shock at affair discovery

Baden-Clay went on to describe Allison’s reaction as “disbelief” when he confirmed that he had been having the affair.

According to the accused, he met with Allison in a car park and she asked him “straight out” if he was having an affair with Ms McHugh. He said he replied that he was.

“She was just in shock … she was just shaking her head, had her head in her hands,” he told the court.

“She said ‘do you love her?’ and I said ‘no’.”

He said there was no shouting or physical violence and Allison instead told him that he had a choice to make.

“It was just an absolute no brainer for me … I want to be with you [Allison] and the girls,” he said.

When he told Ms McHugh that the affair was over, Baden-Clay said she reacted angrily, screaming and throwing things at him.

Baden-Clay said he initially ignored Ms McHugh’s calls and texts but arranged to meet her at a cafe because he had heard she was struggling emotionally and he felt responsible.

“[I] just wanted her to know that I didn’t hate her and to apologise,” he said.

“She asked me if I loved her. She was very fragile, I could tell, and I told her I did and that I was sorry.”

He told the court after that meeting he met with Ms McHugh several times and “there were two occasions when we did have some physical intimacy”.

Baden-Clay said he was doing his best to “help her to try and find something other than me to be fixated upon”.

“I was just trying to, trying to encourage her to find something else basically, that would make her happy and make her additionally, preferably, go away,” he said.

“The challenge that I consistently wrestled with is whilst I was trying to push her away, because of her volatile personality, in my weakness I tended to roll over and say whatever she wanted to hear.”

Tears as accused talks of Allison’s depression

Earlier, Baden-Clay broke down while testifying about the effects of anti-depressant medications on his wife.

He told the Supreme Court his relationship with Allison was deteriorating in the mid-2000s.

He said Allison had really wanted a third child, a son, to continue the Baden-Clay name, but he did not want another child because of the toll it might take on his wife.

He cried as he talked about Allison’s depression.

“I just wanted to make her happy. I’ve always just wanted her to be happy,” he said.

Baden-Clay said the anti-depressant drug Zoloft had helped Allison but added that, at periods, she was like a “blurrier image of herself”.

He has pleaded not guilty to murder.

Under oath last week, the 43-year-old former real estate agent denied killing his wife Allison and disposing of her remains in April 2012.

Baden-Clay cried as he talked about Allison’s depression.

“I just wanted to make her happy. I’ve always just wanted her to be happy,” he said.

The former real estate agent said the antidepressant drug Zoloft had helped Allison but added that, at periods, she was like a “blurrier image of herself”.

Speaking about his first affair, with a former colleague in 2006, Baden-Clay said he “just wanted sex”.

He said, when Alison fell pregnant in 2006, he and his wife agreed that he would seek out sex elsewhere.

He said his physical relationship with his wife was “non-existent.”

“Allison just had no interest in physical intimacy at all,” he said.

Baden-Clay said his relationship with Toni McHugh started in August 2008.

He said Ms McHugh was a colleague and they had been working together for about a year.

“It started one night in the office when we were both working back,” he said.

Baden-Clay said he was in the relationship “primarily for the physical intimacy”, adding that he became concerned when Ms McHugh left her partner.

  1. BR, I looked on Google Earth and found this park on the Brisbane river which is between 1.00 to 1.05 km away from the Kholo Creek Bridge and it would be easy for the person who killed Allison to dump her body in the river there. It’s at the end of Park Road on the opposite side of the river about a km away.
