A woman accused of deliberately driving her car into her boyfriend and crushing him against a wall has broken down in tears as a jury found her guilty of murder.

Jackline Sabana Musa appeared in the NSW Supreme Court on Monday afternoon to learn her fate after facing a one week trial by jury.

The jury found she smashed her black Toyota Kluger into Payman “Paul” Thagipur in the car park of his apartment building at Wentworth Point, in Sydney’s west about 8.30pm. He died at the scene.

During the trial, the jury was told the pair met online at the end of 2019. By June 2020, Ms Musa was under the impression that Mr Thagipur was her boyfriend.

The last time the pair saw each other was June 21, after which Ms Musa sent multiple text messages to Mr Thagipur which went unanswered.

On the afternoon of June 27, she sent another text which went unanswered and she became “suspicious”.

The jury was told Ms Musa decided to check on Mr Thagipur at his apartment and stopped on the way at a shisha bar he frequented.

Ms Musa attempted to get into the apartment building’s car park without alerting Mr Thagipur that she was there.

The court heard she followed another car into the building and hit the roller door on the way, causing it to break.

Ms Musa was let through the security door by another resident after she told him she lived in the building and her key was broken.

She knocked on Mr Thagipur’s door to find him wearing only his underwear and with another woman in the apartment.

Ms Musa asked the woman “is it your turn today?” and spat in Mr Thagipur’s face as she left the apartment, the jury was told.

Minutes later, Mr Thagipur walked into the carpark wearing a T-shirt and pants and began walking in the direction of his car.

When she saw him, the court heard Ms Musa deliberately drove directly at her former lover and pushed him into a nearby wall, crushing him to death.

After deliberating for two days, the jury returned a unanimous verdict of guilty on Monday afternoon.

When the foreman read the decision to the court, Ms Musa began sobbing uncontrollably.

Justice Richard Button dismissed the jury, thanking them for their service in “a distressing matter such as this”.

He adjourned the matter for Ms Musa “to compose herself”. He is expected to set a sentencing date on NMo
