Samurai sword murder accused reveals how lazy brunch led to slaying on inner west street

With her voice wavering and nose sniffling, a murder accused told Sydney detectives how a lazy Friday brunch at home evolved into a scenario that led to her boyfriend striking a man’s head with a samurai sword.

Jurors in the murder trial of Hannah Quinn and Blake Davis on Monday began watching the 26-year-old woman’s six-hour police interview held after her first court appearance on August 14, 2018.

Both have pleaded not guilty to the murder of Jett McKee, with Quinn also denying a further charge of being an accessory after the fact to murder.

“I’m here to help and assist and co-operate with you guys. Where’s the best place to start?” the quietly-spoken Quinn asked the detectives.

She detailed how four days earlier she’d returned to Davis’ Forest Lodge unit with two coffees, avocado on toast and a bacon-and-egg roll and noticed a man “looking around everywhere” in the front yard.
