Woman killed for ‘playing TV too loud’

`A Sydney man stabbed his flatmate to death because she would not turn down the television or stereo while he was trying to sleep, a court has been told.

Jeffrey Dunn today pleaded not guilty in the NSW Supreme Court to murdering his flatmate Jacqueline Dowd at Cartwright, in western Sydney, on March 12, 2004.

However, the 60-year-old pleaded guilty to manslaughter due to provocation. [..]

“I tried to sleep and she turned the television on, then she turned the stereo on,” Mr Conlon said Dunn told police.

“I said, ‘look Jacqui if you don’t shut up I’m going to kill you’.”‘
