Shea Sturt attacked his girlfriend with scissors and smothered her with a pillow before strangling the brain surgery survivor with tracksuit pants to make sure she was dead.

The 33-year-old was in a drug-induced psychotic state when he killed 31-year-old Caitlin O’Brien at their Melbourne home in June 2019.
About a month before she died, the nurse had a brain tumour removed.
But Ms O’Brien lived in fear of her violent and increasingly erratic boyfriend.
She called police two days before the murder, when Sturt began having delusions he was Jesus.
He also forced Ms O’Brien to eat an apple so she could be like Eve and be enlightened.
Sturt was taken to hospital but released that night.
