Accused family killer was 'denied treatment by Scientologist parents' - 2007-07-10
A woman accused of killing her father and sister and injuring her mother was denied psychiatric treatment by her parents who were Scientologists, a court heard yesterday.
They declined the treatment after the 25-year-old woman, who cannot be named, was diagnosed with a psychotic illness last year and instead gave her medication they got from America.
The woman, who is accused of murdering her 53-year-old father and 15-year-old sister in Revesby, south-west Sydney last Thursday, and stabbing her 52-year-old mother, appeared briefly before a magistrate yesterday. She is said to be too ill to be properly interviewed.
