Ms Crenfeldt says she was unable to extract a DNA profile from the blood residue as it wasn't a good enough sample.

Safety footage performed for the jury confirmed Grace, who was on a round-the-world journey, visiting various bars within the metropolis centre with the accused 27-year-old, the place they loved a couple of drinks. Her remains were found on December 9 in the bushland.

The backpacker would have celebrated her 22nd birthday on 2 December 2018.

However, the crown alleges the accused murdered Millane and then attempted to hide his crime by burying her body, while the defence says she died while engaged in a consensual sex act, and the accused then made a number of poor decisions following her death, due to the stress of the event.

Ms Crenfeldt, who carried out a scene examination of the accused's room, told the jury about "probable blood stains" found in the CityLife hotel apartment.

However, the defense lawyer, still claims that Millane's death was an "accident" as the man had restricted Millane's breathing with her consent during sex.

The court has heard no bucket was found when police searched the apartment.

Ms Crenfeldt replied: 'Everything I have seen is consistent with there being blood present and it being cleaned up'.

"Grace would send I love you messages sober but she wouldn't express it to this degree unless she was tipsy or drunk".

Ms Millane, a marketing graduate from Wickford, Essex, had visited South America, including Chile, Patagonia and Peru, before she disappeared after arriving in New Zealand in November a year ago.

"The shape of probable blood staining showed strong support for the proposition that clean up of blood had occurred in this area".

What Crenfeldt did say was it appeared "somebody with blood on their feet moved around the room".

This morning the court heard luminol testing showed blood smearing on the carpet which indicated movement around the room when it was still wet.

While there was no visible sign of blood on the top layer of the carpet, there was evidence of blood on the underside of the carpet, both sides of the underlay and the concrete floor below.

Her last message to her was that out of everyone at Lincoln University, the college where they met, Ms Ashcroft was her "fav".

Ms Crenfeldt said there was no blood on the Adidas bag but stains were found in the carpet, on the fridge and on the suitcase.

The jury have now watched two hours of CCTV footage which filmed the pair bar hopping and clearly enjoying each others company for three to four hours.

The New Zealander later took intimate images of Ms Millane's dead body as it lay on the floor of the CityLife hotel where he was living, the court heard.

A toxicologist said there was no sign of drugs in Ms Millane's body, but that hers blood had 106 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood - more double the legal limit for drivers in New Zealand.

The Crown has alleged that the man, who can not be named due to a suppression order, murdered the young woman from Wickford, Essex, and shoved her body inside a suitcase before burying her in a forested area outside Auckland.
