- Story Text: Sara Connor, an Australian accused of killing an Indonesian policeman in Bali, arrived in court on Thursday (November 24) as the judge decided whether to exempt her from the hearing.
Briton David Taylor, 33 and his girlfriend Connor, 45, could be jailed for up to 15 years if found guilty.
Taylor, who is a musician with the stage name DJ Nutzo, admitted he was involved in a "confrontation" with the officer over his girlfriend's missing purse, but denies killing him.
Connor's defence lawyers said the charges were "made up" and that she was not involved in the killing.
The body of traffic police officer Wayan Sudarsa was found in the early hours of August 17, face down in the sand on the popular Kuta beach, with wounds to his head and neck.
Connor told police that she saw Taylor beating the officer as she searched for her purse, according to her lawyer Erwin Siregar.
