In March 1997, Ciara Glennon allegedly became Mr Edward’s third victim when he took her from Claremont after a night out, and murdered her.
Her body was found in a “strikingly similar” way to Ms Rimmer’s in bushland in Eglinton.
Her cause of death was determined to be a cut to the throat.
The state claims DNA found under the 27-year-old’s fingernails matched Mr Edwards'. It also alleges Mr Edwards did not show up to his friend's Dawesville house that evening, as planned.
“The accused was expected to spend the night with friends, but failed to arrive until mid-morning on 15 March, 1997,” Ms Barbagallo said.
“His stated excuse for his late arrival was that he was trying to reconcile with his first wife.
“That was a lie.”
