But Graham would have told a man that he suffocated her after she had rejected his advances.

The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told Melbourne Magistrates Court on Tuesday that Graham said he & # 39; had sustained & # 39; and first took Mrs. Warrick out for dinner.

& # 39; And then he brought her home and then he did the business to her, & # 39; said the witness, based on a conversation with Graham between December 2012 and January 2013.

& # 39; He has choked, choked her.

& # 39; He tried to put it on her. She rejected him.

& # 39; He smothered her with a kind of pillow. & # 39;

The man also said that Graham & # 39; really enjoyed & # 39; of what he had done.

& # 39; Colin further said that he had been watching her for a while. She was attractive … and far from his competition. & # 39;

In a previous statement to the police, the same man said that Graham had Mrs. Warrick & # 39; frozen & # 39; after & # 39; she said no to him and laughed at him & # 39 ;.

In 2017, a Million Dollar Cold Case episode about Mrs. Warrick's death revealed a $ 1 million reward for information that led to a murder sentence.

Since then, witnesses have claimed that Graham may be responsible.

He was interrogated by police after Mrs. Warrick's body was found, admitting they had pizza the night she died, but denied involvement in her death.

The court was previously told that Graham & # 39; fall in love & # 39; and had an affair with Mrs. Warrick when she died.

Graham's ex-wife, Roslyn Absalom, said she and her then husband went to the woman's funeral.

Mrs. Absalom said that Graham told her that the press would be there and that people would be watching for those who killed Warrick.

The hearing with the committal, which will determine whether Graham is on trial for murder, is expected to end on Wednesday.
