$60K bail for woman over back stabbing incident


    A 33-year-old woman has been granted $60,000 bail after being accused of stabbing her common-law husband during an argument.

    Mandy Phillip, of Jaggan Village, Santa Cruz appeared before a judge virtually on Monday 14th December 2020.

    Charged with malicious wounding, she is due to reappear in court on January 11th 2021.

    The charge stems from an alleged incident in which the woman reportedly stabbed her 44-year-old partner with a nine-inch blade in his lower back.

    The man ran out of the house and called out to his mother who contacted EHS and police.

    Officers interviewed the victim, arrested the suspect and took the man for medical treatment.
