Man held gay lover hostage
A man held his gay lover hostage, claimed he had killed a Sydney pharmacist and demanded $200,000 to flee the country before murdering the man's family, a court was told today.
Raymond Shen broke down in tears today as he told the NSW Supreme Court how his lover removed photographs of his adult children from his wallet and threatened to hurt them if he did not give him the money to return to his home in Benin, West Africa.
Crespin Adanguidi has admitted killing the wife and two adult children of Mr Shen at Rockdale, in Sydney's south, on February 1, 2003.
But the 27-year-old has pleaded not guilty to the murders of Shiquin Zhu, 55, Pin Shen, 27, and Christy Bo Shen, 23, on the grounds he was suffering from a mental illness at the time.
Mr Shen, 59, met Adanguidi in 2000 when the younger man was working as a security guard at his Rockdale apartment building.
Despite the pair both being married with children, the relationship soon evolved into a sexual one and Mr Shen would often give Adanguidi gifts, including money, the court was told.
Mr Shen went to Adanguidi's flat at Maroubra, in Sydney's south, about 9.30pm on January 31, 2003 where they had a sexual encounter.
Adanguidi then hit him over the head, tied him up and demanded $200,000, of which $70,000 was to buy false travel documents from a Slovenian gang and a police officer, he said.
Mr Shen said Adanguidi told him that he had to leave Australia because he had killed a pharmacist in Hurstville, in Sydney's south-west, when he had refused to give him any money.
"He wanted to leave Australia because he just killed a pharmacist in Hurstville the day before because the man didn't give him the money," Mr Shen said.
Sobbing uncontrollably, Mr Shen said Adanguidi pulled photographs of his two adult children out of his wallet and threatened to hurt them if he did not hand over the money.
"He got my wallet and first picked my daughter's photograph in front of me," he said, crying and shaking.
"He said do you like your daughter ... I said I do, I love her.
"He said I don't want to do harm to your family unless the Slovenian gang force me to do that...
"Then he took my son's photograph...
"I said don't do harm to my children. I also said you can kill me today because I am in your hands."
Adanguidi also falsely accused him of sending photographs of them having sex to his wife, Mr Shen said.
He then went to Mr Shen's Rockdale flat in the early hours of the morning where he robbed and then killed the older man's wife and children, the court was told.
Crown Prosecutor Tim Hoyle SC said Adanguidi tortured Mr Shen's wife before she died of head injuries while both the son and daughter were shot in the head at point blank range.
The trial continues tomorrow.
