A Melbourne woman accused of murdering her partner, whose body has never been found, is due back in the Supreme Court where she is standing trial.
The woman, who can't be named for legal reasons, allegedly complained to her friends and lovers about the man, claiming he was controlling, violent, had raped her and her dog and had locked her in their Reservoir home.
Prosecutors claim she bragged to others about having killed the man, telling one person she slit his throat during sex and "it was the best orgasm I ever had".
She allegedly told another person she laced the man's pepper steak with sleeping tablets then bludgeoned him to death as he slept on the couch.
The court has also been told she's described having help dismember the man's body and dropping him in Port Phillip Bay.
On Monday, the deceased man's son will continue giving evidence before the jury and Justice Jane Dixon.
The witness was 16 years old when his father disappeared and had been living in a bungalow at the rear of the couple's house.
