The court previously heard how Ms Millane and the accused had visited a number of bars on the night she died after connecting on dating app Tinder.

Both the friends had continuously exchanged messages during the date as both the victim along with the accuser moved to various spots across the city which also gave Ashcroft the feeling that her friend was having a "good time" while Millane was not concerned about her safety.

But when questioned by the accused's lawyer, Ian Brookie, she said the original location and source of blood was unknown.

Her body was found buried inside a suitcase in dense bushland west of the city a week later.

Dianne Crenfeldt, a forensic scientist for ESR New Zealand, on Friday told the court that chemical testing had been used on the accused's hotel room and evidence of blood was found on the foot of the bed, in footprints walking towards the bathroom and in small splatters on the fridge.

She added: 'The shape of the probable blood staining and the presence of blood on the floor provided strong support that clean up of blood had occurred in this area'.

Ms Millane, 21, and the accused 27-year-old man who can not be named for legal reasons, were seen on CCTV footage "plainly comfortable. plainly enjoying themselves", in the words of the prosecutor Robin McCoubrey.

The footprints clearly showed someone had walked in blood with their left foot, the scientist said, and "transferred ... blood around the room".

The last known sighting of Grace Millane was at about 9.40pm when she was captured on CCTV entering CityLife hotel with the accused.

Luminol tests, she said, are used by police in suspected crime scenes because the tests are very sensitive and can detect a clean-up.

Mr Thomas-Stone said there was extremely strong scientific support it was Ms Millane's DNA.

The smaller of the stains "could have come from a bucket", Crenfeldt said. Blood with DNA matching hers was also found on a suitcase in the wardrobe of the apartment.

She had been on a trip around the world, travelling alone in New Zealand for two weeks.

Records showed the defendant had searched online for "the hottest fire", "large bags near me" and "Waitakere Ranges" - where Millane's body was later found contorted inside a suitcase on December 9, 2018 - before going on another Tinder date later that day.

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.

Ms Kappatos told the court microbial action in the body may increase or decrease alcohol concentration so she couldn't be certain her result was the level present at the time of Ms Millane's death.

Millane's alleged killer gave a police interview on December 8 a year ago in which he said Millane was bleeding, the court has heard.

The trial continues on Monday and Justice Simon Moore reminded the jury not to engage with others about the case.
