Woman Charged For Sodomising Lover
A Perth woman will go to trial next year accused of handcuffing her soldier lover to a chair and sodomising him with a sex toy in an alleged hour-long sex attack.
Nicola Clunies-Ross, 19, allegedly lured the Darwin-based soldier, also 19, to her East Perth home on October 28, 2006 and tricked him into being handcuffed and tied to a chair.
Once he was secured, her soldier boyfriend, Peter Justin Gurdulic, 19, allegedly appeared and bashed her lover.
Clunies-Ross and Gurdulic then allegedly both penetrated the soldier with a sex toy during an hour-long attack.
Clunies-Ross has pleaded not guilty in the West Australian District Court to assault occasioning bodily harm, aggravated sexual penetration without consent and deprivation of liberty.
She was granted bail.
The court set down January 21 for her trial.
Gurdulic, who was from the same Darwin regiment as the victim, was found dead at Leeuwin Barracks in November 2006 after being charged over the alleged attack. There were no suspicious circumstances.
Clunies-Ross' family was granted the Cocos Islands, in the Indian Ocean, about 2,700km north west of Perth, by Queen Victoria in 1886 after Captain John Clunies-Ross, a Scottish trader, landed on the islands in 1825.
The Australian government bought the islands from the family in 1978.
