The jury in the trial of an Irishman accused of murder in Australia has been shown footage of a police interview recorded after the alleged incident.
Vincent Martin Crowe is accused of murdering 21-year-old Kenny Meyler at a house in Scarborough, on February 10 last year.
The court has heard police found information about Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous in Mr Crowe's home, and that he had taken drugs in the hours before he allegedly stabbed Mr Meyler in the neck.
Rebecca LeMay of the Australian Associated Press attended proceedings today, and described the content of the police video.
“He was basically unable to answer the question, repeating … that he couldn’t remember anything about the 10 hours in the lead-up to Kenny Meyler’s death,” she said.
“It would appear [to have been a] complete shock to him, from the footage, when police put it to him; ‘Why did you stab Kenny?’ and he basically responded to them: ‘I have no idea’.”
