The day before her alleged sex slaying by a stranger, Luzmila Contreras, 46, assaulted her common-law husband, Raymond Duguay, 43, and demanded that he sign the deed of their home over to her, a jury heard yesterday. The immigration consultant was beaten and strangled in her office in August, 1999.

Mr. Duguay testified at the first-degree murder trial of Jason Colson, 25, charged with sexually assaulting and killing Ms. Contre. Mr. Duguay said he last saw her alive on July 31, 1999.
