‘Call the police... I just stabbed him’ Price to neighbour

ROCKHAMPTON'S Lachlan Black was yesterday flown to Prince Charles Hospital in Brisbane with "life-threatening injuries" after allegedly being stabbed by Erin Jane Price on Sunday night.

Price, 42, faced Rockhampton Magistrates Court yesterday on one charge of attempted murder.

Her application for bail was refused.

During her application the court heard Price asked a neighbour to call the police after the alleged stabbing.

"Can we ring the police. I have stabbed him ..."

That is what a court heard Price asked a neighbour after she allegedly stabbed Mr Black in her West St, Rockhampton home on Sunday night.

Mr Black, 39, was taken to Rockhampton Hospital before being flown in a critical condition to Brisbane, where he remains in a stable condition.

Police prosecutor Constable Erin Jones detailed the facts of the case while outlining the objection to Price's bail application.

She said police attended the Allenstown address at 7.40pm. They found Mr Black lying on his back with wounds to his chest. Price was in a seated position above him, applying pressure to the wounds.

Const Jones said there was blood on the walls and in other areas of the house.

She said Price told police that Mr Black had come to her house and they were both consuming alcohol.

A verbal argument broke out during which Price claimed Mr Black had punched her in the nose. She then allegedly picked up a knife and stabbed him.

The court was told police had spoken to neighbours, who said they had overheard a loud disturbance.

"There's been a knock at their door and the defendant was seen to be standing there with a knife in her hand," Const Jones told the court.

"There was another witness that's also stated that the defendant said to her: 'Can we ring the police, I have stabbed him; once in the left shoulder and I can't remember where else I got him'."

Duty lawyer Lauren Skarott said Price had no criminal history, she was a full-time as a medical radiation technologist and she had a young son.

She said Price had tried to help with Mr Black's injuries, contacting the police and the ambulance and trying to stem the bleeding until the ambulance arrived.

Magistrate Michael O'Driscoll said he was not satisfied the defendant had shown sufficient cause why she should not be remanded in custody.

Price will re-appear in court, via video link, on Thursday, November 6.
