Mum-of-four accused of chopping off her boyfriend’s penis and stabbing his mate to death in alleged double murder pleads not guilty by mental impairment
- Jasmine Eveleigh is charged with murder of her boyfriend and his mate in May
- Boyfriend Samir Esbeck was found with penis removed at Melbourne apartment
- His friend Sarkis Abboud died of stab wounds while on the way to hospital
- Eveleigh pleaded not guilty in a Melbourne court to murder on Monday
A mother-of-four accused of murdering two men, including her boyfriend who was allegedly found with his penis severed, claims she was not responsible for her actions at the time.
Melbourne woman Jasmine Eveleigh pleaded not guilty by way of mental impairment to the stabbing murder of her boyfriend Samir Esbeck, 59, and his friend Sarkis Abboud, 61, at an apartment in inner-city Brunswick at 5:20am on May 5.
Mr Esbeck, 59, died at the scene with his penis allegedly removed while Mr Abboud, 61, passed away of stab wounds on his way to hospital.
Eveleigh, 44, was found at a Carlton tram stop later that morning with a substantial amount of blood on her.

Eveleigh appeared in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court via videolink for the brief hearing.
Dressed in blue prison garb, the alleged killer will remain behind bars until her next Supreme Court of Victoria hearing in October.
It remains unclear if prosecutors will contest Eveleigh’s mental impairment claims, which would likely result in a separate trial to determine it.
In May, the court heard Eveleigh had been seeking treatment for an array of mental health issues culminating in a ‘severe breakdown’ in June 2021.
It’s understood Eveleigh had been in a relationship with Mr Esbeck for 10 years before she allegedly turned on him in a frenzied knife attack.

On Facebook, the doting mother proudly boasted about her eldest son’s kindness and strength in the face of adversity and shared sweet snaps with her youngest three.
‘I am truly blessed to be the mum of such a kind, remarkable, true gentleman,’ Eveleigh said.
She often shared sweet tributes to motherhood and family, including one which read: ‘I’m not perfect at everything, but I do make some adorable babies.’
CCTV footage allegedly showed her wandering the streets of Melbourne in a bra with blood on her feet.

The footage captured Eveleigh allegedly with her shirt wrapped around her left hand moments after the alleged attack.
She was seen running across numerous streets and down dark alleys in shoes that were allegedly covered in blood.
Police allege Eveleigh left behind a 1.5km trail of blood with droplets found along several roads and a children’s playground.
The case returns to court at a later date.
