A woman accused of murdering an autistic teen reportedly carried out the act because it was on her “bucket list.”
Jemma Lilley, 26, of Perth, Australia, is accused planning and executing the murder of Aaron Pajich, 18, with the help of her partner Trudi Lenon, 43, in June 2016, Perth Now reports.
State prosecutor James McTaggart told the West Australian court over the past month how Lilley is obsessed with serial killers and knives, and how Lenon – a mother of three – is a “submissive” to Lilley during their BDSM sexual encounters, according to WA Today.
“At the time of the murder [Lilley] was a person obsessed with violence and all kinds of unquestionably cruel manifestations of torture and was writing about it.”
The prosecution said the two met and moved in together, with Lenon’s children in tow, and allegedly began to plan a “thrill kill” – something Lilley allegedly wanted to do her whole life.

The prosecution claimed Lenon brought the autistic 18-year-old to the home she shared with Lilley, and the two women “took Aaron Pajich’s life in a way that was as brutal and violent as could possibly be imagined.”
McTaggart said that Lilley revealed to a friend some years ago that killing someone before 25 was her “life’s objective,” and after the murder, she was so self-contented that she bragged to her co-worker about the incident.
Lilley allegedly confessed to Mathew Stray while they were working that she had committed the murder.
“I did it, I killed him.”
The 26-year-old was also reportedly observed with bite and scratch marks along her arms that same week.
Both Lenon and Lilley are denying the murder, but are pointing fingers at each other.
Lenon admitted to being an accessory to the murder but said she didn’t do it.
Lilley claimed that she invited Pajich over for BDSM “training,” but had left the room for a nap. When she later returned, his belongings were there, but he was nowhere to be found. Lilley said Lenon convinced her to renovate the backyard and patio so that she and her children could relax out there, but she had no idea that’s where the body was buried.
The trial is set to end later in the week. Check back with CrimeOnline as additional details become available.
