A woman who was stabbed six times and doused in petrol met her attacker on an online dating site, court documents reveal.
Angela Jay, 28, was attacked when her boyfriend of two months, Paul Lambert, 36, ambushed her inside her home in Port Macquarie on the NSW mid north coast about 6:00pm on Thursday.
Lambert was shot dead a few hours later during a confrontation with police after a chase to nearby Bonville.
Police believe he was lying in wait inside Ms Jay’s Magnolia Place home before the attack took place.
Ms Jay applied for an Apprehended Violence Order against Lambert on October 31, just a day after she received around 50 threatening text messages and phone calls from him.
“Your [sic] not safe in that house. I have some of the house keys,” one of the messages read.
“I need you to understand that this is my good side right now. That good side won’t last long. Especially being rejected.”
Court documents revealed Ms Jay tried to end the relationship after a few weeks but decided to give it another go when Lambert became upset, began crying and sending constant phone calls and text messages.
The documents state Ms Jay ended the relationship again, telling Lambert: “It’s over I don’t want to see you again”.
But she went and stayed the night at Lambert’s house after he called incessantly and threatened to “jump in front of a bus” if Ms Jay did not return.
On Saturday October 29, Ms Jay attended a work function in Gosford with Lambert because he had been invited to the event some time before.
But she left the function early and stayed at her sister’s house after getting upset about the ongoing problems with Lambert.
