"You would argue that . I should infer that the killing happened in the course of a jealous rage?" Harding's sentencing judge Justice Peter Garling asked Mr Wilson.
He submitted that Harding's high level of intoxication and the brain damage he had suffered in a motorbike accident years before meant he was not fully aware of what he was doing.
Harding then walked out of the house and did not return, disposing of the methylated spirits bottle in what Crown Prosecutor Pat Barrett described as a "feeble attempt" to hide his involvement in the crime.
"His ability to exercise self control, to consider the likely consequences of his actions and to appreciate the seriousness of his conduct, would all have been affected by the alcohol in addition to the brain damage that he undoubtedly has," Mr Wilson said.

Man burnt disabled girlfriend alive in
A country NSW man murdered his wheelchair bound girlfriend by setting her on fire after he flew into "a jealous rage" during an argument about another man, a court has heard.

Ambulance officers arrived soon after, but Ms Anthony's injuries burns to Iphone Case Prada 40 per cent of her body proved too great. The 50 year old was at Sydney airport, en route to the burns unit at Concord Hospital, when she went into cardiac arrest.
"The deposing of trust in a person who was a close friend is a more significant because of the level of her disability," he said.
But Justice Garling said while he had not made up his mind, he did not think the crime fell into this category.
Christine Anthony, 50, who suffered from a severe disability from a young age, was doused with methylated spirits and set alight by Harding in February 2011 in her Narromine home.

"This was a woman who was severely disabled. She couldn't in any way defend herself from an assault."
Harding will be sentenced on Thursday afternoon.
