Nurse Admits To Knife During Heated Argument With Boyfriend Who Said ‘Come On, Stab Me’
- Nurse pleads guilty to one charge
- Court hears chilling new details about relationship
Details have emerged of what prompted a Sydney woman to pick up a knife in the early hours of the morning with the intention of attacking her partner.
Kristy Anne Wild was due to face a five-day hearing in Burwood Local Court on Monday after she was accused of stabbing her boyfriend at their home in Cabarita in September 2021.
But instead of fighting the charges, Wild pleaded guilty to one count of being armed with intent to commit a felony assault, while a reckless wounding charge was dropped by police.
The court was told the registered nurse allegedly endured a tumultuous two-year relationship marred by violence at the hands of her former partner Jamie Blewitt.
But things escalated during the 2021 Delta Covid-19 lockdown, with court documents detailing the hours leading up to the attack.

On the evening of Sept. 29, Wild and Mr. Blewitt had been drinking before sitting down to watch a movie, according to court documents.
When Mr. Blewitt was unable to put Wild to bed in the wee hours of the following morning, the pair began arguing and shouting insults at each other.
According to court documents, Mr Blewitt ‘suddenly’ grabbed Wild by the shoulders before twisting her leg.
“He held a knife at her and said, ‘I’ll do it, I’ll do it’ with the intent to frighten her according to the facts,” attorney Rory Pettit told the court.
“Those are things that would probably be characterized as extreme provocation or things that greatly influence or inform her motive.”
After Mr. Blewitt reportedly shoved “the knife” in the direction of Wild’s abdomen, court documents claim 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 go after him.
According to court documents, Mr. Blewitt turned and said, “Come on, then stab me, go ahead.”
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 2021 arrest.

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 without conviction
He said it was a “deep shock to her system,” especially during the Covid-19 lockdown.
A police prosecutor told the court she opposed the non-conviction based on the seriousness of the crime.
Ms Slack-Smith said she accepted Wild was a victim of domestic violence and sentenced her to a community release order for 19 months without conviction.
There is a court order forbidding her to go near Mr. Blewitt.
