Alleged stabber too ill for court

A Sydney woman accused of stabbing her father and sister to death has not appeared in court today because she is too ill.

The 25-year-old woman is facing two charges of murder after allegedly stabbing her father and sister to death.

She also faces one charge of inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent to murder her mother.

The alleged attack took place in the family’s home at Revesby in south-west Sydney last week.

The woman, who cannot be identified, was due to appear in Burwood local court today, but prosecutors told the court that she was too ill to attend.

The case has been adjourned until September.


Scientology link: Earlier this week, a court heard that the woman was denied psychiatric help because of her parents’ belief in Scientology.
