Jurors visit house where Katie Foreman died

Jurors in the Katie Foreman murder trial have visited the Corrimal house in which the young solicitor died.

The jury panel was taken to Doncaster Street on Wednesday night to see for themselves the two-storey house, which they had previously only seen in pictures and a video taken in the days after the fatal fire in October 2011.

Ms Foreman's on/off partner, Bradley Rawlinson, is accused of conspiring with his secret lover and Ms Foreman's former friend, Wendy Evans, to kill Ms Foreman so they could be together.

Several witnesses have told the NSW Supreme Court that Evans had a vendetta against Ms Foreman after discovering she had slept with one of Evans's sons, and with her former boyfriend.

Rawlinson and Evans allegedly hired western Sydney couple Bernard Spicer and Michelle Proud to help organise and carry out the crime.

The Mercury understands jurors were taken to key spots inside the house, including the bedroom where the fire originated, and the landing area where Ms Foreman's burnt body was located.

Jurors also visited multiple sites outside the house and along Doncaster Street itself.

Prior to Wednesday's visit, defence barrister Nathan Steel tendered documents to the court detailing the difference in the moon phase on the night of the fire, and what jurors would see during their visit.

The trial will resume in Sydney on Thursday.
