Man accused of stabbing ex-wife loses bid for bail

A MAN accused of stabbing his ex-wife in the chest while she slept has lost his bid for bail.

Toowoomba man Darren James Williams, 36, is charged with the attempted murder of his former wife, 27, which police claim occurred on October 14.

It will be alleged the woman woke in her bed at a Kurrajong Crt residence at 11.30pm with a sharp pain only to find she had been stabbed.

She was hospitalised for a number of days.

Defence solicitor Kyna Morice made the bail application on behalf of Williams in the Toowoomba Magistrates Court yesterday.

Prosecutor Sergeant Tony Costa opposed Williams' bid for freedom.

Sgt Costa said Williams left the knife in his ex-wife's chest and that she woke up with the knife in her chest.

Ms Morice said Williams suffered from mental health issues and was not taking his medication before the alleged offence.

Williams is also charged with entering a dwelling with intent and using violence, unlawful stalking and contravening a court order.

Magistrate Bruce Schemioneck denied the bail application and Williams was remanded in custody.

The case was adjourned for a committal mention on February 20.
