NSW man denies 1997 murder of teen wife

August 07, 2017

Steve Frank Fesus is accused of murdering his wife in 1997.

A bouncer spoke about giving away his teenage wife's clothes to charities only two days after he told people she had disappeared from their NSW home, a jury has been told.

"His intention to give her clothes away within two days indicates he knew she would not be returning or would not need her clothes or other belongings," prosector Greg Smith SC said in the crown opening address on Monday.

Steve Fesus, 46, has pleaded not guilty in the NSW Supreme Court to murdering Jodie Fesus, 18, in August 1997 at their Shellharbour home, on the NSW south coast, before burying her body in a shallow grave at Seven Mile Beach, near Gerroa.
