Kinky sex man's 'sham amnesia' over girlfriend's death

THE Rotherham  man accused of  murdering his girlfriend during kinky sex told police: “It's killing me she’s not here.”

And a  jury heard  that Jason O’Malley, who denies murder, told police he could remember nothing about how 36-year-old mum Kerry Sneddon died from strangulation after they started having sex last November.

The prosecution allege that O'Malley's amnesia is a sham.

But the court heard that 0'Malley told police just hours afer Kerry's naked body was found on the floor of their living room: “I’m not just saying that because I want to blank it out, I can’t remember anything.”

O’Malley (40) said that Kerry liked him to squeeze her throat during sex but he could not remember if he had done so on the night she died.

A transcript of the interview was read out to the jury at O’Malley’s trial at Sheffield Crown Court yesterday.

He said that he and mum-of-two Kerry—who was due to celebrate her graduation in beauty therapy from university—planned to marry on New Year’s Eve and had discussed having a baby.

O’Malley, a house-husband who looked after Kerry’s two children at their home in Whybourne Grove, Rotherham, said: “We didn’t have a perfect time but we had each other and the kids.

“I’ve been racking my brain to remember what happened, sitting on the bed and walking around to remember if I did anything.

“If I could remember, I would. It’s just killing me she’s not here. I just keep thinking about the kids.”

The court heard that O’Malley and Kerry would discuss when they were going to have sex and how many times.

Mr Bryan Cox QC, prosecuting, told the jury that O’Malley’s alleged amnesia was a “sham.”

The trial continues.

Kerry killed as baby slept.
