A MAN attacked his girlfriend and then refused to go to hospital to see her before she died because he had not finished his beer, a Sydney judge has been told.
According to a tendered statement of facts, Zammit, Ms Ward and his ex-girlfriend Christine Jennings drank cask wine and beer on May 15, 2006. Later that evening, Ms Jennings asked Ms Ward whether Zammit hit her from time to time, to which she replied that he did. The conversation had upset Zammit and after Ms Jennings left, he began swearing at his partner, saying for "f**k sake, what did you say that for". "(he) then grabbed (her) by clothes she was wearing and threw her with a great deal of force into the refrigerator area of the kitchen," the statement said. "(She) bounced off the refrigerator and hit her ribs on the bench top." Ms Ward then went to bed, moaning and groaning, and when they woke the next day, Zammit continued to berate her. He again grabbed Ms Ward and threw her against a cupboard, causing her to fall to the floor. "(he) told police that he knew (she) was in pain and that she was having trouble breathing `but she wouldn't want me to do anything about it'," the statement said.
