Erin Patterson has bought and sold at least six properties in Gippsland and Melbourne since 2014.

She is accused of lacing a winter's lunch in her Leongatha home with poisonous mushrooms that killed three former family members and almost claimed the life of a fourth. She has faced court also charged with attempting to murder her estranged husband Simon four times.

Patterson's former in-laws, Don Patterson, 70, and Gail Patterson, 70, as well as Gail's sister, Heather Wilkinson, 66, all died in hospital days after the lunch, where beef Wellington was served. Heather's husband, 68-year-old Baptist pastor Ian Wilkinson, was released from the Austin Hospital after seven weeks of treatment – most of which he spent in a coma.

Police allege that the poisoning was caused by death cap mushrooms. The death cap is responsible for 90 per cent of mushroom-poisoning deaths. One bite can be enough to kill someone, causing severe gastroenteritis and eventually organ failure.
