Ex-stripper sentenced for murder plot


Robyn Lindholm, 46, already in jail for the murder of her “besotted” lover Wayne Amey, was found guilty in September of murdering her fiance George Templeton in 2005 using Amey to carry out the crime.

The former exotic dancer was ordered to serve 28 years in jail but she is already serving a 25-year sentence for organising the slaying of Mr Amey in 2013 and will not be eligible for parole until she is 71.

The 46-year-old one-time exotic dancer had told his family Mr Templeton, also known as George Teazis, had gone missing.

His body has never been found.

“There would be little scope for rehabilitation and there is a complete absence of any remorse in the killing of George Templeton,” prosecutor Ray Gibson QC told the Victorian Supreme Court at a pre-sentence hearing last month.

The arranged killing was premeditated and Lindholm convinced Amey to carry out the crime, he said.

Mr Templeton’s family begged Lindholm to tell them where his body is so he could receive a proper burial.

“If we as a family could ask for anything, it is to know what happened to George and where his body lies,” sister-in-law Deborah Teazis told the court.

The jury heard during a seven-week trial he may have been shot at the Reservoir home the couple shared with his — possibly dismembered — body dumped in Port Phillip Bay in southern Victoria.

Lindholm had once worked for strip club pioneer Maxine Fensom and is serving a 25-year-sentence for Amey’s murder.

Eight years after she got him to kill Mr Templeton, Lindholm arranged for Amey to be killed when their relationship soured.

Lindholm was charged with murder in 2016, but details of the case were heavily suppressed until a verdict was reached. Now she’s been found guilty at trial, it can revealed she’ll soon be jailed for murdering the man she’d grown to despise.

But the former stripper, 46, who once used the stage name “Colette” and worked for exotic club pioneer Maxine Fensom, is already in jail serving a 25-year sentence — for murdering Amey in 2013.

Initially denying the charge, Lindholm confessed she’d arranged the gym owner’s death when their relationship soured, asking her new lover and another man to execute her “wicked design”.

Lindholm was addicted to ice and living out of her car when she met Torsten Trabert, who was motivated by “an obsessive lust” when he ambushed Amey at a car park, bashed him with a baseball bat and threw him into a car boot. Amey was stabbed several times, strangled and had his legs hogtied.

His dead body was wrapped in canvas, hidden between boulders, and covered with sticks and rocks at Mt Korong.

Lindholm, who slept with Trabert at a secluded spot after the murder, had already asked two other ex-lovers to kill Amey.

During her murder trial this year, the jury heard Mr Templeton died after Lindholm fed him a “hearty” steak and pepper sauce meal and shots of Greek brandy, visiting a friend after dinner so she’d have an alibi while Amey did her bidding.

A week later, police organised a televised press conference seeking public assistance over the missing man, with Lindholm smiling and relaxed before changing into “the grieving girlfriend” when the cameras started rolling.

Lindholm’s run of luck ended after she bragged about Mr Templeton’s death, telling a fellow prisoner: “I slit his f***ing throat and as he came it was the best orgasm I ever had”, adding she got covered in warm blood.

On another occasion, she told a man she’d beaten Mr Templeton to death with a fire poker after drugging his pepper steak, having turned the music up loud to drown out the noise.
