Witnesses paint a picture of accused in Claremont trial

A woman – who dated Bradley Robert Edwards’ brother around the time Sarah Spiers went missing – has been questioned at his trial.

Tracey Chrystal told the court she met Mr Edwards and his brother at the Ocean Beach Hotel in late 1995.

Defence Lawyer Paul Yovich questioned this – he says she told an early police interview they met early 19-96.

She’s the first witness to give evidence from the same courtroom as Mr Edwards.

Another woman who dated the 50-year-old is now being questioned as prosecutors are trying to determine a timeline of Mr Edwards’ personal relationships.

He’s pleaded not guilty to the murders of three young women in Claremont in the mid-nineties — his six month trial started on Monday.
