Woman kills partner with a pickaxe to the noggin, this In a town called Indented Head

Woman admitted she killed, buried partner, friend tells 

court
A woman charged with murdering her partner with a pick axe 

confided to a friend and her father that she had buried his body in 

her backyard, a court has heard

A woman charged with murdering her partner with a pick axe 

confided separately to a friend and her father that she had buried 

his body in her backyard, a court has heard.

Angela Williams, 44, is alleged to have struck her partner of 23 

years, Douglas Kally, with a pick axe 16 times to the head some 

time between July 10 and 31, 2008.

Police allege Ms Williams wrapped Mr Kally's body in a tarpaulin 

and buried it in a small grave behind the couple's home in Indented 

Head, on the Bellarine Peninsula, according to documents tendered 

to Melbourne Magistrates Court.

After his death, Ms Williams allegedly told the couple's two 

children and Mr Kally's family that he had left the family home and 

moved to the NSW town of Kiama, the documents show.

Mr Kally's family reported him missing in October 2008.

One day in 2010 or 2011 Ms Williams, while in the presence of a 

new partner, told friend Joanne Mills she had murdered Mr Kally 

and buried his remains, the court heard on Thursday.

''Ange told me she had killed Doug and had put him in the 

backyard and her and [her partner] looked at me to see my 

reaction,'' Ms Mills said.

''I didn't believe Ange was capable of something like that.

''When she said it to me she was waiting to gauge my opinion with 

smirk on her face.''Ms Mills told the court she later thought Ms 

Williams was joking when her friend laughed off the remark and 

said, ''As if.''

''I said that would be a bloody stupid thing to do because that 

would be the first place that they would look,'' Ms Mills said.

Ms Williams' father, Ralph Williams, said his daughter had told him 

what had happened, and that he had encouraged her to contact the 

police.Ms Williams was charged in December last year, when Mr 

Kally's remains were discovered.

The court heard Mr Kally was violent towards his partner and their 

children, and had at one point asked her to take the blame for a 

marijuana crop he was cultivating when it was discovered by 

police, so he would not face any trouble.

Ms Mills said Mr Kally occasionally made nasty remarks towards 

his partner at social gatherings, and that later Ms Williams showed 

her cigarette burns inflicted on her by him.

Ms Mills also said Mr Kally had made an unwelcome sexual 

advance towards her at a party when Ms Williams was not present.

Mr Williams told the court Mr Kally had once pushed his partner 

into the edge of a fireplace, and that on another occasion he had 

smashed a beer glass on Mr Kally's head and punched him when he 

''tried to throttle me''.

''If I had known what that mongrel had done to my children he 

wouldn't have got up a third time,'' Mr Williams said.

Two of Mr Kally's brothers gave evidence on Thursday and said 

they knew nothing of any violence, and said the last time they had 

seen him was in 2006 or 2007, when he gave the impression he had 

been asked to leave home by his partner.

In the documents tendered to court, police allege Ms Williams 

disposed of a Doona and sheets after Mr Kally fell on a bed after 

he was struck, and disposed of the pick axe at Geelong East beach.

Police allege that in the weeks after Ms Williams killed Mr Kally 

she pretended to speak with him on the phone during a family 

gathering, and that about a month later she told her son that his 

father had sent him a watch for his birthday.

The hearing, before magistrate Dominic Lennon, continues.
