Thomas Bednar made no secret of his distaste for his mother when the police took him to court after accusing him of murder.

But in a taped conversation with officers, he repeatedly said he was set up and urged them to find out who really killed 78-year-old Judy Bednar.

Bednar, 54, spoke candidly to officers in a conversation played Wednesday to jurors in his Victorian Supreme Court murder trial. He has pleaded not guilty.

An officer acknowledged that Bednar had “a past” with his mother and had previously told police he was not upset about her death in May 2021.

He is accused of killing her at her home in Chelsea sometime between May 12 and May 15.

Her body was found by police during a welfare check. Friends couldn’t reach her for several days.

“I’ll be honest about that, because she’s been an absolute b**ch to me,” Bednar said.

He told officers he didn’t know she was dead until they arrested him walking to the beach to swim.

‘I don’t know about the murder. How did she die?’ he asked.

Bednar said he didn’t have a scratch before asking if a gun or knife was involved.

The officer declined to give details, saying he wanted the trial to be fair to Bednar.

“I don’t know what happened, I can’t say what happened because I wasn’t there,” Bednar said.

“I was tricked and I don’t know how.”

Bednar broke down when he told the police that he had never been in custody before, but that he had been held for mental health reasons.

“This is even more terrifying,” he said.

He also became upset when the police asked him what he wanted to do with his cat, Dennis.

Agents said they would arrange for Dennis to be taken to Lort Smith Animal Hospital to be cared for through the legal process and asked if they could ask a friend to check in on the beloved pet.

“I don’t know, I’ve lost all my friends since all that shit,” he said.

Bednar explained that his life had been ‘fine’ 12 months earlier and that he had a taxi and a steady clientele.

Prosecutors allege he killed his mother because he blamed her for a series of involuntary mental health hospitalizations.

Bednar’s lawyer, John Desmond, has told jurors’ family friend Danny Cohen that he is another plausible suspect in Mrs Bednar’s murder.

Mr. Cohen gave evidence at the trial and told jurors that he had not framed Bednar.
