THE girlfriend, of a man accused of murdering grandmother Hilliary Allen, has denied confronting the 82-year-old in her Singleton home.
Cheyenne Anderson has told Newcastle Supreme Court that, on the day in question, she didn’t leave her own home in George Street, Singleton.
Mrs Allen was found on the garage floor of her Boonal Street home on March 2, 2009, having died of blood loss from a leg gash.
Scott O’Heir, 28, formerly of George Street, Singleton, has pleaded not guilty to murdering and robbing Mrs Allen.
Mr O’Heir’s barrister Nicholas Moir has told the court that Ms Anderson entered Mrs Allen’s home before his client and was involved in some sort of confrontation. Mr O’Heir tried to help Mrs Allen, Mr Moir said.
Ms Anderson has denied Mr Moir’s suggestions that she was involved in an interaction with Mrs Allen who ended on the floor and yelled “Get out, get out! Someone help me”.
Ms Anderson said Mr O’Heir went for a walk by himself and returned home with Mrs Allen’s purse and other things. The trial before a jury and Judge David Freeman continues today.
