Murderer Arthurell charged with sex crimes | Blue Mountains Gazette

An NSW woman convicted three times for murder is back behind bars after being arrested for an alleged sexual crime.

Regina Kaye Arthurell, 75, was arrested Friday by Campbelltown police after a younger man reported several cases of sexual assault last week.

The couple knows each other.

Arthurell stood in court Friday afternoon charged with four counts of sexually assaulting another person without consent and did not apply for bail. She is due in court again on February 4.

The woman is subject to a two-year extended supervision order, following her prison sentence for the 1995 murder of former partner Venet Mulhall expired in May 2021.

ESO has more than 40 conditions, including requiring her to be subject to electronic surveillance despite her lawyers claiming it was unnecessary and oppressive.

Arthurell first killed in 1974 after committing manslaughter on his stepfather Thomas Thornton, who is said to have been very violent.

In 1981, she committed manslaughter on Naval Officer Ross Browning in a robbery in the Northern Territory.

A few years after being released, she murdered Mrs Mulhall by slinging her to death with a piece of wood in her Coonabarabran home in central NSW.

Alcohol was implicated in all the killings, which were committed under her birth name Reginald Kenneth Arthurell, before she came out as transgender in custody.

Ms Mulhall’s brother has long been afraid she will kill again.

Arthurell is now blind in one eye and her other health problems include significant tremors in her hands.
