Melbourne man admits killing his partner weeks after she had brain surgery

A Melbourne man has pleaded guilty to murdering his partner, weeks after she recovered from surgery to remove a brain tumour.

Shea Sturt stood calmly in the dock, dressed in a jacket and tie, in Melbourne Magistrates Court on Friday and pleaded guilty to murdering his partner, nurse Caitlin O’Brien in June last year.

The court heard the couple’s relationship had often been unstable and there was a history of domestic violence, where Sturt had assaulted his partner.

Melbourne nurse Caitlin O'Brien was found dead inside her apartment in Gardenvale.
