Hudson manslaughter trial continues

More will be heard about the last hours of a West Australian man who died after a violent house invasion on the Gold Coast when a manslaughter trial continues on Thursday.

The body of Gregory John Hudson, 57, was found naked in the spare room of a friend's Varsity Lakes townhouse in October 2014.

Benjamin Samy Ghobrial, Milan Chante Walker and Lee Benjamin Feld have all pleaded not guilty to manslaughter in the Brisbane Supreme Court.

The jury heard that during a cocaine binge Mr Hudson bought sex from Walker several times and after texting her, persuaded her to visit the townhouse on the morning he died.

Crown prosecutor Philip McCarthy said the trio plotted to rob the FIFO carpenter, and during a violent home assault he was gagged and restrained and possibly punched.

This, he told the jury, strained the enlarged heart of Mr Hudson and, coupled with his prolonged excessive cocaine use, may have lead to his death.

Ghobrial and Walker have pleaded guilty to a count of burglary while Feld has pleaded not guilty to this charge.

The trial continues.
