The question of whether Corryn Rayney was wearing a coat the night she died was raised again today, with a new witness claiming she saw her with a jacket.

Jill Kellock, who was one of the women who attended a Bentley bootscooting class with Mrs Rayney on the night she was killed, described seeing her arrive at the class that night.

"She had a jacket on, which she removed and there was a little alcove in the hall - she put the coat on a chair by the alcove," Ms Kellock told Lloyd Rayney's Supreme Court trial.

She described the coat as being "like a woollen three quarter length cardigan".

The question of the coat is significant because a coat was found on Mrs Rayney's bed after she went missing. Crucial to the prosecution's case against Mr Rayney is that his wife returned home after the bootscooting class.

The court heard from two bootscooters last week, one whom said he could not recall if Mrs Rayney was wearing a coat that night. The other said she had definitely not been wearing one but may have been carrying it.

Asked under cross-examination from Mr Rayney's barrister David Edwardson whether she was confusing the last night she saw Mrs Rayney with previous bootscooting classes Ms Kellock said: "I don't think so."

Mr Edwardson went on to ask Ms Kellock several questions about that night, apparently aimed at testing her memory. She said she could not remember what music was playing but that night but she did remember the bootscooters dancing on either side of her as well as roughly how many people attended that night.
