Rejected Sydney woman says hitting her ex with a car was an accident

“I drove off and he came for me,” said Jackline Sabana Bona Musa in a video played to the jury at her NSW Supreme Courtthe trial on Friday.

The 47-year-old has pleaded not guilty to Thagiput’s murder on the evening of June 27, 2020 in the parking lot of his Wentworth Point apartment building.

De Kroon claims she was angry when she found him in his underwear with another woman.

But the defense denies that she used her car with murderous intent or in an unlawful manner amounting to manslaughter.

Leading Senior Constable Steve Nevill told the jury that he went to the scene and saw Thagiput lying on the floor facing the wall.

“There was a lot of blood on the floor under him.”

He was making panting noises, but from experience he knew it was not breathing, but noises emanating from a dead person.

Footage from his body-worn camera was played for the jury, starting with Musa saying she had been behind the wheel.

“I drove off and he came in front of me,” she said.

“This person is my boyfriend.

“All week I’ve been trying to get hold of him, he never answers.”

She said she had been worried about him, thinking he might be sick.

She called him, but he hung up.

“He stopped talking to me,” Musa said.

“I was hurt inside as a woman.”

She said she went to his house to see what happened.

“There was a lady inside,” she said.

Thagiput told her to leave and she did, but when she started her car, he came out.

Earlier, the jury was told her triple-zero call, with the operator saying “I don’t understand a word you’re saying” and “you don’t make any sense.”

Musa says, “I’m killing someone here. It was a terrible accident. I didn’t mean it.

“I just hit him and he’s dead.”

She later said, “He came out of nowhere in front of me.”

She told the operator that he was bleeding profusely.

‘It’s my boyfriend. I find him with another woman.’

The trial continues before Judge Richard Button.
