A stash of "sex accessories" was discovered in the bedroom of a man stabbed to death by his housemate after they played “sexual games”, a court has heard.
Eliska Novotna admits stabbing Arunas Ramanauskas up to six times at a remote farm house near Peebles on October 7 last year.
But she denies murdering the Lithuanian - claiming she was acting in self defence as she feared being the victim of a sex attack.
The High Court in Dundee earlier heard that Novotna told police hours after the incident: "we played sexual games - then I killed him".
On Monday the court heard the final witnesses for the defence in the case.
Detective Constable Stuart Campbell told the court that he was called in his role as crime scene manager to oversee a search of the property on October 10. He said: "The parameters of the search were to look for clothing, any weapon that may have been used and any items relating to violent sex and bondage."
PC Ross Parker said he had taken part in the search and had carried out the duty of logging every item found. He said items found in Novotna's downstairs bedroom at the farmhouse included a condom wrapper, a knife, a DVD recorder, USB sticks and payslips.
The officers then moved upstairs to Mr Ramanauskas's bedroom, where his body was found. PC Parker said: "We found a knife, a watch, a diary, a chequebook, bank cards, driving licences and some other cards.
"We then found a Durex box in the bedside cabinet.
"And then we found a parcel containing sex accessories.
"That was found in the small bedside cabinet in the bedroom.”
PC Parker held the four items within the parcel up to the jury, and said: "One of the items describes itself as a 'bluey punch vibe'. It is a sex accessory - a vibrator.
"The second is a 'G love vibrating ring'."
Jim Keegan QC, defending, said: "Another sex accessory?" PC Parker said: "Yes.
"The next item is some sexual lubricant and the fourth is a small battery."
Police also found delivery notes addressed to Mr Ramanauskas - with the trial earlier told that the package had been delivered to him and accepted by Novotna on the day she stabbed him to death.
PC Parker added: "The delivery address is for Arunas Ramanauskas at East Happrew Farm and it is for sex toys and lubricant.
"They were found in the cabinet in bedroom one."
Mr Keegan asked: "That's the bedroom in which the deceased was found?"
PC Parker: "Yes."
Novotna earlier told the court how she tied a dressing gown cord round her housemate's eyes and neck before arming herself with a knife, walking topless into his room then stabbing him to death.
PC Vanessa Hamilton had told how she came across Novotna walking on a road into Peebles near the town's police station in the early hours of October 8.
Novotna later told her: "We played some sexual games - then I killed him."
Novotna, 23, denies a charge of murdering Mr Ramanauskas on October 7 or 8 last year at The Old Farm House, Easter Happrew, Peebles, by repeatedly stabbing him on the body with a knife.
Novotna has lodged a special defence of self defence in the case.
The trial, before Lady Clark of Calton and a jury of nine men and six women, continues.
