A teenager who choked to death a man she met online had previously threatened to hurt her full-time carers. 

Jamie Lee Dolheguy, 20, of Sunbury in Victoria, has pleaded not guilty to murdering Maulin Rathod in July 2018 amid claims he died in a depraved sex game gone wrong.

The Supreme Court of Victoria has heard Dolheguy had been housed with the Department of Health and Human Services since she was a 10-year old and required 24-hour a day care.

The jury heard on Thursday that while the deeply disturbed teen had frequently self-harmed, she had also previously discussed hurting those who had cared for her.  

Multiple social workers told the jury on Thursday that Dolheguy required the most intensive care they had ever seen. 

She had been under the care of two full-time carers, whom would take turns to remain awake during the night, up until four months before she killed Mr Rathod. 

Less than six months earlier, during the Christmas holidays, carers were forced to use bolt cutters to free Dolheguy after she had attempted suicide. 

It was one of several disturbing self-harm incidents throughout the period, the court heard. 

Yet a DHHS decision to cease her 24-hour a day care was approved, which saw Dolheguy reduced to 'outreach' care, which restricted her access to one-on-one carers to about eight hours a day at most. 

Social workers had been trying to get the disturbed teen to live independently in the community and partake in normal activities such as dance classes. 

They were oblivious she had signed-on for an online dating site, which would lead to shocking consequences. 

The jury heard Dolheguy had a friendly rapport with the local police, whom she called immediately after strangling Mr Rathod with electrical cord. 

An audio recording of an officer who took her call was played to the court. 

The recording indicated Dolheguy had made full admissions to the crime. 

When police arrived at Dolheguy's home, they found her victim dead on her bed. 

In her first day of trial on Wednesday, the jury heard she had searched online for ways to 'kill and get away with it' in the hours before the alleged murder. 

Dolheguy had never met her 24-year old victim when she killed him.

The jury has heard there was no dispute the then 18-year old had killed Mr Rathod, but whether she intended to kill him. 

Mr Rathod had made the mistake of contacting Dolheguy through a dating app called 'Plenty of Fish'.
