Accused refused bail in Scientology murder case

A Sydney woman accused of murdering two family members has been refused bail.

The 25-year-old who can’t be named is accused of stabbing to death her sister and father, both Scientologists, in their home in Revesby last July.

It is also alleged that she attacked her mother but the third victim survived after two weeks in hospital.

The accused has been diagnosed with a psychotic illness, the doctor telling the court that his patient would respond better to treatment in the non-custodial environment at the Bunya facility at Cumberland hospital rather than the hospital wing at Long Bay where she currently resides.

The Magistrate denied the conditional bail application supporting the Crown submission but the accused’s actual medical treatment will remain the same no matter where she is housed.
