A court has heard that 33-year-old Colleen Deborah Ayers was strangled and throttled following a sex and drugs binge at the parents farm.

Ms Ayers is believed to have engaged in a threesome in a hotel with a group of people, before inviting them back to her parent's farm in Lakesland, south of Sydney, Australia, for a party.

Her parents returned from holidays to find their home had been ransacked.

They then discovered their daughter’s body buried close to a dam on May 31, 2012.

Crown prosecutor Elizabeth Wilkins told the court that Ms Ayers met Micheal John Duffy, Rachael Margaret Evans and another woman at a pub.

The group then checked into a hotel where Mr Duffy, Ms Ayers and Ms Evans had sex while another woman filmed the group.

The group also brought drugs to share the next morning, Ms Wilkins told the court, before they took a cab to Ms Ayer’s family farm where they began drinking in the guesthouse.

Ms Ayers was murdered during a sexual encounter with Micheal John Duffy, the court heard.

It is alleged that Rachael Margaret Evans, barged in on Duffy and Ms Ayers as they had sex and started strangling her with a belt.

The jury was told there was evidence that Ms Evans became angry that the two were having sex and said:

"I'm going to do it, I'm going to do it."

"Rachael Evans will tell you that she did go in with a belt and she did put it around the deceased's neck, with the intention of strangling," Ms Wilkins said.

"But I expect she will tell you that the deceased struggled and bucked her off... and it was at that stage that the accused, Mr Duffy, intervened and also started strangling the deceased."

34-year-old Micheal Duffy is accused of helping Evans throttle Ms Ayers before they robbed the Greens’ house.

He has denied murder, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

The jury also heard that Evans has pleaded guilty to the murder.

Defence barrister James Trevallion told the jury it was Evans and a teenage girl, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, who killed Ms Ayers.

Mr Trevallion said Evans and the girl agreed to blame Duffy in the event police questioned them.

The trial continues.
