Robynne Fraley (pictured) was beaten an inch away from her life by her husband of 30 years. He pleaded guilty to serious assault charges, alleging that he had no intention of damaging her.
A woman who was beaten to an inch of her life by her husband with a hammer and a knife has no memory of the assault, a court has heard.
Robynne Fraley was bleeding with serious head injuries in the garage of her home in Cecil Hills, west of Sydney, after a sudden and brutal attack by her husband Robert Hilton Fraley on April 4, 2016.
At Mr. Fraley's trial in a NSW district court on Wednesday, his daughter Courtney Khannara said she had "been advised not to tell her mother how she suffered the injuries."
"My mother has suffered amnesia since the event and before the event," he told the court, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.
Mr. Fraley faces a trial at the Downing Center, accused of causing serious bodily harm with the intent to murder and inflict serious bodily harm with the intent to cause serious bodily harm.
He pleaded not guilty to both charges, for the statement that he did not intend to harm her.
The jury heard that after a marriage of 30 years, Mrs. Fraley had left her family to live with another man.

On the day of the attack, Crown Prosecutor Nick Borosh said that Ms. Fraley had arrived at the front of the house to pick up her belongings before 12.30 p.m. M. From April 4, 2016.
She got out of sight of the CCTV cameras set up in an adjacent house at 12:34 p.m., five minutes before the police received a phone call from Mr. Fraley.
The jury made a series of chilling telephone calls to Fraley on Tuesday after the attack.
"I'm worried that he killed her," he told a Green Valley police officer over the phone.
& # 39; I suppose I'll go to jail & # 39;
Mr. Fraley then asked the agent if they would send the police to his house, and they explained that he would leave the garage door unlocked and that he was going to take a drive, he heard himself in court.
He called a second time five minutes later to ask the police: "Did you send someone?"
Six minutes later he had a final conversation with the police, admitting that he had become "ballistic".
"I went crazy, I never thought I had it in me," he said.
& # 39; We are having marriage problems. Is she dead? Children will never forgive me.
Ms. Fraley was taken to the hospital with knife wounds to the neck and chest, as well as serious head injuries, where she was beaten.
The trial continues.
