A British woman who likes to read about serial killers is accused of stabbing her boyfriend to death with a knife and then laughing while looking at his body on video chat.
Shaye Groves is currently on trial for the July 17 murder of her lover, Frankie Fitzgerald. The jury at Winchester Crown Court heard this week that the mother of one stabbed Fitzgerald 22 times while he was sleeping, the Daily Mail said.
Prosecutors say Groves, who was 27, was “obsessed” with Fitzgerald’s “performance in the bedroom.” She attacked him at her home when she found out he was talking to a 13-year-old girl, which made her very angry.
Vikki Baitup, who used to be friends with Groves, said that the accused killer called her after the attack and was “giggling away.” The Daily Mail said that Baitup said Groves pointed the camera at Fitzgerald’s dead body and said, “I’m done with him.” Baitup then called the police, and when they got to Groves’ house, they smelled an “incredibly strong” amount of bleach in the bedroom.

In addition to Baitup’s testimony, the jury heard about Groves and Fitzgerald’s s*x life, which reportedly included bondage, dominance, submission, and masochism, as well as “knife play” with Groves’ four decorative blades.
In a letter read to the court, Groves gave Fitzgerald written permission to “wake [her] up through s*xual intercourse from the date of 22 March until further notice.”
Groves may have put a camera in her bedroom and filmed the two of them making out. Baitup said in court that she had used similar videos to threaten her past boyfriends.

“She compiles evidence against everyone to see how she can use them as leverage,” Baitup said of Groves, who she remembered was “not shy” about her unique s*x life.
Baitup also talked about Groves’s history of violence, saying that she once used nail clippers to hurt a roommate. Groves had a rough past, and she also had a soft spot for serial killers.
This week, the Daily Mail published pictures of the accused’s bedroom wall, which was covered with portraits of well-known killers like Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Myra Hindley. Groves’s trial is still going on. She has denied the murder charges and says she did what she did to protect herself.
