Mother who stabbed a man to death and dragged his body behind her car for 1.6km after he 'raped her and threatened to attack her daughter if she didn't submit to more sex' is jailed for 10 years

A Brisbane woman has been jailed for 10 years for killing a man she claims raped her after he threatened to harm her daughter unless she submitted to more sex.

Roxanne Eka Peters, 35, fatally stabbed Grant Jason Cassar, 51, with a blow to his heart at her home in Capalaba, near Brisbane, in December 2015.

She claims Cassar raped her after tying her up, then said he would harm her child if she didn't have sex again.

After the stabbing she tied a rope around his body, including his neck, and dragged it behind her car for 1.6km to a ditch where she hid it.

His body was found the next day with over 61 injuries, including 10cm stab wounds on his chest.

The base of his penis and his oesophagus was also stabbed.

In the Brisbane Supreme Court on Monday, Peters was sentenced to nine years in jail for manslaughter and a further 18 months after she pleaded guilty to interfering with his corpse.

With time served she will be eligible for parole in June 2020.

Idea

IF she had simply killed him, and then called the police, she may well have been able to claim "self defence" -- and then walked free from court...

I suspect a lot of her sentencing hinges on the multiple wounds, mutilating and disposing of his body..

As it is, that article says she will be up for parole in 2020.

How come it took nearly three years to bring her to trial and convict her?

The article says that he threatened to rape her when he broke in - nothing about tying her up.
