Murder by a red G-string...

A woman wore nothing but a red G-string when she attacked and killed her boyfriend's estranged wife who had just found them in bed together, a court was told yesterday.

Kathleen Schroeder, 43, appeared in the Brisbane Magistrate's Court charged with murdering Narelle Nix-Barclay, also 43, in February. That charge was dismissed after argument from defence counsel Peter Shields and she was committed to stand trial in the Supreme Court on the lesser count of manslaughter.

The committal hearing was told that Mrs Nix-Barclay discovered Schroeder and her estranged husband, Scott Nix-Barclay, in bed at his Wynnum West home and began lashing out and screaming abuse.

The two women began pulling each other's hair and then the dispute, also involving a naked Mr Nix-Barclay, moved out on to the front lawn of the home.
