A ‘damaged’ teenager who choked to death a man she met online had searched online for ways to ‘kill and get away with it’ in the hours before his alleged murder.

Jamie Lee Dolheguy, 20, of Sunbury in Victoria has pleaded not guilty to murdering Maulin Rathod in July 2018 amid claims he died in a depraved sex game gone wrong. 

Molheguy had only four months earlier been allowed to live on her own after her Department of Human Services carers deemed it was safe to do so.

The deeply disturbed teen had lived for years under the 24-hour a day watch of two DHS minders, who catered to her ‘complex’ needs. 

Dolheguy had never met her 24-year old victim when she strangled him to death. 

The Supreme Court of Victoria heard there was no dispute the then 18-year old had killed Mr Rathod, but whether she intended to kill him. 

Mr Rathod had made the mistake of contacting Dolheguy through a dating app called ‘Plenty of Fish’. 

Dolheguy’s profile stated it was her first time dating and she was ‘not without flaws’. 

The teenager claimed she had a borderline personality disorder and suicidal tendencies. 

She further claimed she had two ‘extreme fetishes’, including ‘bondage and discipline’ and being ‘gang raped against her will’.

On the night Mr Rathod would die, Dolheguy had been angry that she did not have access to her medications.  

The court heard she had been abusive to her social workers when Mr Rathod made contact. 

‘Let’s hang. Are you keen?’ he asked.

Dolheguy told him she was and gave him her address. 

‘I’ll put on my favourite perfume,’ she texted him. 

In the hours before he arrived,  prosecutor Patrick Bourke said Dolheguy put her murderous plan into play. 

She Googled ‘I’m going to kill someone tonight for fun’ before clicking on a link titled `10 Steps For Committing A Murder And Get Away With It’. 

When Mr Rathod arrived, she asked him to ‘go slow’. 

The court heard she was dressed up in cosplay as they chatted in her bedroom. 

Mr Bourke said whatever happened next was only known from what Dolheguy told police herself when interviewed. 

She told police she warned Mr Rathod she had ‘psychopathic tendencies’ and ‘wasn’t safe’. 

The pair discussed ‘choke play’ before deciding on a signal to indicate he was not comfortable. 

The supposed signal was a simple ‘tap’.

Dolheguy then told police she choked her hapless victim, who proceeded to kick and swing his arms about. 

‘It’ll be okay,’ she whispered to him, telling him to tap. 

Eventually he stopped moving altogether. 

It was then that she wrapped a cord around his neck and pulled even tighter before choking him with another cord. 

‘So he wouldn’t wake up,’ she told police. 

She then called the Sunbury police station, telling an officer: ‘I think I killed someone … it feels so good. I don’t want to be a killer.’

Maulin Rathod applied to a depraved online ad posted by his eventual killer. He supposedly allowed himself to be choked in a sex game that went very wrong

While paramedics were able to resuscitate Mr Rathod, he died a day later after life support was pulled. 

Mr Bourke said Dolheguy later told detectives she had ‘intended to kill him’. 

‘She killed him because she wanted to,’ he said. ‘It was her desire … she acted on her desire to kill him.’

Mr Bourke claimed Dolheguy ignored her victim’s taps and struggles and murdered him. 

Dolheguy’s barrister Sharon Lacy agreed her client had killed Mr Rathod, but said the jury would be satisfied it was unintentional. 

‘She’s a very damaged person,’ she said. ‘With complex needs.’

Ms Lacy said Dolheguy had been neglected as a child and had been cared for by the state since she was a 10-year old. 

She told the court her client had told police she was mentally unstable on the night of the alleged murder. 

‘It’s  like a warzone with myself,’ she told police. ‘I was hoping he would run away … call the police.”

Ms Lacy said Dolheguy told police her mind was at war within itself. 

‘Arguments, warzone, panic. It’s like chaos,’ Dolheguy told detectives. 

‘Can you be satisfied she had the state of mind required for murder,’ Ms Lacy asked. 

The trial continues.
