A Sydney doctor charged with killing his wife with a lethal dose of fast-acting insulin is due back in court today.
Brian Kenneth Crickitt, 63, has pleaded not guilty to murdering Christine Crickitt, 58, inside their southwest Sydney home over New Years Eve 2009, reports the ABC.
Prosecutors allege that Mr Crickitt was having an affair and her murdered his wife, who did not have diabetes, so he could access more that half-a-million dollars from her life insurance and begin a life with his lover.
It is alleged the accused forced the injection or lied about medication but an autopsy on Mrs Crickitt's body on January 2, 2010 reportedly found no clear cause of death.
The defence has denied the allegations and says that the doctor had no financial worries and the affair was no reason to kill his wife.
The trial continues today in the NSW Supreme Court.
