A MAN accused of strangling his lover during a sex game has described their last moments together.
Jason O’Malley (40), claimed he and Kerry Sneddon (36), chinked glasses to toast their forthcoming marriage before having sex on the floor of their living room in Rotherham.
“We started kissing and taking each other’s clothes off and had sex,” O’Malley told a jury at Sheffield Crown Court.
But O’Malley, who denies murder, claimed he could remember nothing after starting to have sex.
Kerry’s naked body was later found strangled with a ligature at their home in Whybourne Grove last November.
O’Malley told the jury Kerry liked him to squeeze her throat during sex to improve her orgasm.
But he could not recall if he had done so on the night she died.
He said previous during sex games Kerry had tied him up to the bed frame a few times and also hit him with a “smacking paddle” but they had never used a ligature.
O’Malley has denied that his amnesia was a “sham” to conceal what he had done.
The trial continues.
