A man has landed in serious trouble after accidentally killing a woman during rough sex.
The tragic incident happened in the UK.
Speaking to the jury after he was accused of raping and murdering his friend, he said he didn’t kill her intentionally, but it was an accident.
Wesley Streete, 20, was “trusted” to walk Keeley Bunker home to safety when they arranged to go clubbing after she went to rapper Aitch’s concert in Birmingham with a friend.
However, in the early hours of September 19 last year, Bunker revealed he put her body in a nearby stream and covered it with branches, a court heard.
The missing 20-year-old, who weighed just 41kg, was discovered by her uncle during a search party, in Wigginton Park in Tamworth, Staffordshire, around 23km northeast of Birmingham.
Giving evidence in his defence for the first time today, Streete outlined what he claims happened before her death.

He agreed that he had been at Snobs nightclub in Birmingham city centre with Bunker and another friend, Monique Riggon, some hours earlier before they returned to their home town of Tamworth.
The three of them arrived at Riggon’s home, but Bunker wanted to sleep in her own bed leading to Streete escorting her home.
He claims the pair started “flirting” with one another and kissed before having sex in Wigginton Park.
“I had my arms around her neck and accidentally killed her,” he revealed.
He admitted lying to the victim’s family, friends and the police about what happened because he was “embarrassed” about the incident.
“I was scared and didn’t know how to tell people how she died. I was scared to explain to the police, everyone, and mum and dad,” he said.
Streete said he knew Bunker through infant and high school and told the court they were “friends”.
He said the pair and smoked cannabis “about four times a week” from 5 pm or 7 pm or 8 pm at Wigginton Park.
Of the night of her death, he said he thought he “may” have smoked cannabis and was drinking vodka Red Bulls “three cups” at a time.
Streete said he thought he drank nine vodka Red Bulls mixers but could still walk and that he felt drunk when they arrived at Riggon’s house.
Prosecutors have told the jury Streete changed his account at least four times between his arrest and the trial.
