Woman accused of stabbing released on bail
A WOMAN accused of stabbing her partner with a steak knife has been granted bail.
Rynetta Denise Gyemore faced the Rockhampton Magistrates Court yesterday, charged with unlawful wounding.
It is alleged a disturbance broke out between the lovers after the victim came home from a party with another woman.
Police prosecutor Danita Clarke told the court police were called to the Woorabinda home about 11am on November 21.
Ms Clarke said the 45-year-old man suffered a single stab wound to the left side of his abdomen.
Police located a serrated steak knife, with a 15cm blade, in the kitchen.
The victim was airlifted to the Rockhampton Hospital in a stable condition.
Ms Clarke said Gyemore handed herself into police the next day in relation to the incident.
Solicitor Shayne Studdert made an application for bail on his client's behalf.
Ms Clarke opposed this on the grounds that Gyemore was an unacceptable risk of committing further acts of violence.
She said keeping her in custody was also for her own safety.
However, Mr Studdert said Gyemore was willing to live with her sister in Gracemere.
He said she was also happy to abide by a condition not to go to Woorabinda.
Magistrate Cameron Press said Gyemore had no convictions for failing to appear or breaching bail.
He said any risk the defendant posed could be adequately managed.
He granted her bail on strict conditions.
No plea was entered and the matter was listed for committal mention on January 28.
