A WREXHAM man told an emergency services operator he had killer his partner by mistake, a court heard.

The Leader reported previously on the ongoing trial of 23-year-old Madog Rowlands, of Coed Efa in New Broughton.

He is accused of the murder of his partner, 21-year-old Lauren Griffiths, who was from the Oswestry area.

On Friday morning Jurors saw a selection of CCTV clips showing the last sightings of Lauren Griffiths.

She and Rowlands had been shopping on the afternoon of April 28 and returned to Glynrhondda Street at about 5.10pm.

After that, the CCTV showed, lights could be seen going on and off in the property several times into the early hours of the morning.

Phone messages recovered show him ordering drugs the following morning and bank activity show him being debited for a takeaway - all of which is captured arriving at his home on the afternoon of April 29.

A 999 call placed by Rowlands at about 6pm on April 30 was played to the court.

In it he tells an operator: "I've killed my fiancee by mistake - she is dead."

When asked how she had died, he told the operator: "I have strangled her.

"We got into a fight."

He also said he'd taken "a lot of LSD and MDMA".

The operator then tried to talk Rowlands through CPR before the paramedics arrived at the scene minutes later.

Police arrived on the scene shortly after and on initial inspection it was noted that the lower half of Ms Griffiths' body up to her thighs had been wrapped in clear plastic film.

Also shown was a conversation with police at the flat moments after his arrest, in which he told officers he had been arrested for attacking Ms Griffiths previously. "It was strangling again," he said.

The Jury also saw and heard records of that incident, which happened in 2018.

In a 999 call placed by Ms Griffiths' friend on March 7 of that year, an operator was told Rowlands had "grabbed" his partner's throat and pushed her into the bedroom before asking; "Do you want to die?"

In a police body cam excerpt, officers spoke to Rowlands and Ms Griffiths following the incident.

He said his partner has broken his laptop and he'd "snapped" - attempting to take his own life and Ms Griffiths'.

In the footage, she told the officer Rowlands had spent all of their money and was feeling suicidal.

"He wanted me to die with him," she said. "I didn't want to die."

The court heard a statement from Dr Phillippa Walker, a consultant psychiatrist working in a community mental health team with outpatients in Oswestry.

She met Lauren Griffiths in 2016, at which point she was 18.

Speaking of her relationship with Rowlands, Dr Walker said it was described as "supportive."

In her summary, Dr Walker described Ms Griffiths as having a "history of abusive relationships," mood changes and periods of odd behaviour.

She diagnosed her as having complex trauma leading to dissociative episodes.

Ms Griffiths had self harmed previously, which was the only type of aggression Dr Walker noted during their appointment.

She didn't report any aggression towards any others during their appointment, she said - her mood was "superficially neither high nor low."

Michael Jones QC, prosecuting, told the court Ms Griffiths had been assessed in September 2018 as part of an application for Universal Credit.

In that examination it was noted she was not able to "go anywhere on her own" due to her anxiety and stress, but she could go out if accompanied by Rowlands.

He also made all of the phone calls - due to the stress if caused her - as well as dealing with financial tasks, the court heard.

The trial continues.
