Nurse admits to wielding a knife during a heated argument with her boyfriend who said: ‘Come on, stab me’
- Nurse pleads guilty to one charge
- Court hears chilling new details about relationship
Details have emerged about what led a Sydney woman to pick up a knife with the intention of attacking her partner in the early hours of the morning.
Kristy Anne Wild was set to undergo a five-day hearing in Burwood Local Court on Monday after she was accused of stabbing her boyfriend inside their Cabarita home in September 2021.
But instead of fighting the charge, Wild pleaded guilty to one count of being armed with intent to commit an indictable offence of assault, while a charge of reckless wounding was withdrawn by police.
The court was told the registered nurse had allegedly endured a tumultuous two-year relationship marred by violence at the hands of her former partner Jamie Blewitt.
But matters escalated during the 2021 Delta Covid-19 lockdown, with court documents detailing the hours before the attack.

On the evening of September 29, Wild and Mr Blewitt had been drinking before settling down to watch a movie, according to court documents.
When Mr Blewitt could not move Wild to bed in the early hours of the following morning, the pair began having an argument and yelling insults at each other.
According to court documents Mr Blewitt ‘suddenly grabbed’ Wild by the shoulders before twisting her leg.
‘He thrust a knife towards her saying, “I’ll do it, I’ll do it” with the intent to scare her as per the facts,’ defence lawyer Rory Pettit told the court.
‘Those are matters probably characterised as either extreme provocation or matters that greatly affect or inform her motive.’
After Mr Blewitt allegedly ‘shoved the knife’ towards Wild’s abdomen, court documents allege he yelled: ‘F**k you. When I get home tomorrow you can leave.’
He walked out of the house, prompting Wild to pick up the knife and chase after him.
According to court documents, Mr Blewitt turned around and said: ‘Come on, stab me then, go on.’
Mr Pettit asked magistrate Gemma Slack-Smith to consider not imposing a conviction for Wild, as she had already spent 118 days in custody following her arrest in 2021.

Magistrate Gemma Slack-Smith said she accepted Wild was a victim of domestic violence and sentenced her to a community release order for 19 months with no conviction
He said it was a ‘profound shock to her system’, especially during the Covid-19 lockdown.
A police prosecutor told the court that she opposed the non-conviction based on the seriousness of the offence.
Ms Slack-Smith said she accepted Wild was a victim of domestic violence and sentenced her to a community release order for 19 months with no conviction.
A court order is in place preventing her from going near Mr Blewitt.
