Accused home invader: ‘I want to come home’

A MAN and a woman with bikie links charged with attempted murder after a violent home invasion in Sydney's west will remain behind bars for up to two months after being refused bail.

Kristen Lee Moriarty, 28, faced Liverpool Local Court on Wednesday with a black eye after she was arrested over the alleged stabbing attack in Bringelly on Monday night.

The incident has been described as "terrifying" by NSW Police detectives.

Ms Moriarty said "I want to come home" and "I love you" to her supporters as she rose from her seat in the dock and pressed her hands against the glass.

Her alleged accomplice, 32-year-old Scott Stephen Keighran, who is facing identical charges, did not appear in court.

Neither of their lawyers made an application for bail and it was formally refused, however, Moriarty's lawyer indicated a release application would be made on August 10.

He asked that she be assessed by a medical practitioner for her "visible injuries" in the meantime.
The matters were adjourned until September 17.
