A woman who choked an Indian-origin man to death had googled ways to “kill and get away with it,” a court has heard.

Jamie Lee Dolheguy invited Maulin Rathod to her address in Victoria, Melbourne, in July 2018 after meeting him on a dating app.

While they were in bed, she choked him and strangled him to death with a USB cable.

She called emergency services and said: “I think I’ve killed someone. I didn’t want to, but I did it.”

The court heard she also told officers: “It feels so good. I don’t want to be a killer.”

She also told police that she had warned Rathod of her “psychopathic tendencies” and had warned him that she “wasn’t safe”.

Before Rathod arrived at her residence, she had googled the phrases: “I’m going to kill someone tonight for fun”, and clicked a link entitled: “10 Steps For Committing A Murder And Get Away With It”.
She also searched for “I’m going to kill someone tonight help’ and ‘I will kill someone tonight, I want to commit murder.”

Although paramedics managed to resuscitate Rathod and he was taken to hospital, he died the following day.

Rathod was studying a Masters of Accounting and had been in Australia for the past four years.

The court heard that Dolheguy was neglected as a child and was cared for by the state since she was 10. On the night of her meeting with Rathod, Dolheguy had contacted a case worker to say she had forgotten her medication.
“I feel really sick with bad temptations,” she reportedly said.
