A British man and his Australian girlfriend accused of killing a policeman on the Indonesian island of Bali have taken part in a reconstruction of the murder, Sky News reports.
Footage shows David Taylor, 33, and Sarah Connor, 45, dressed in orange prison outfits and with their names printed on signs around their necks, at the crime scene with scores of police officers on Wednesday.
Wayan Sudarsa’s body was discovered with head and neck wounds on Kuta beach on 17 August. Lawyers for the couple have so far given contradictory and confusing accounts about the events.
Taylor has admitted getting into a “confrontation” with the policeman and striking the victim with a beer bottle, leaving him unconscious, but denies killing him, according to his lawyer Haposan Sihombing.
He has previously said his client had admitted striking the officer on the head with a pair of binoculars. Connor has claimed she saw Taylor “beating” the traffic officer as she looked for her purse, according to her lawyer, Erwin Siregar.
He has also claimed his client saw the policeman lying face down on the beach and when she approached to ask him whether he had seen her bag, he bit her on the leg. Images of the reconstruction showed Taylor re-enacting the moments he struck the victim with a green beer bottle during a fight on the sandy beach.
Others showed Connor on the back of a motorbike and the couple hugging one another. The Briton, a musician with the stage name DJ Nutzo, and Australian were named as suspects and arrested two days after the killing while seeking protection at the Australian consulate.
They have since been detained and questioned by police in Bali’s capital, Denpasar, and could face up to 15 years in jail if found guilty of murder. Under Indonesian law, charges are only laid once the case gets to court.
