A court has heard Amati was hearing voices inside her head "telling her to kill". Amati, who is accused of a rampage at 7 - Eleven Enmore last Saturday morning, is undergoing gender transitioning. Evie Amati is accused of an axe attack at Enmore in Sydney last Saturday.

THE VICTIM of a violent axe attack at a suburban Sydney 7 - Eleven last year has told a court how he had a feeling of foreboding before Evie Amati "I turned away and then I was struck, I was hit across the face, over my nose. It was like being king hit. Then I stood up, the blood , I was bleeding profusely.

Mr Wood described the way Ms Amati moved towards him as "slow, steady and deliberate" and said when she was a few metres away from him she raised the axe.

"I realised that she was intending to do harm so I made a mad dash to the end of the block … and hit send on the call to Triple 0," he said.

"When I got to the end of the block I turned around to see if she was in pursuit and I saw a homeless man was right behind me and I watched her take a swing with the axe at him."

It has been 18 months since the incident and Mr Wood said he was is still undergoing "post-trauma therapy".

"I'm even dealing with flashbacks — it's just this memory of locking eyes with her under the light of the petrol pumps, with her coming at me and then me trying to get away," he said.

DNA will prove man innocent of raping elderly Tasmanian woman, lawyer says

  DNA will prove man innocent of raping elderly Tasmanian woman, lawyer says A man who is alleged to have raped an elderly woman in her home did not commit the crime and DNA evidence will prove it, his lawyer says, with a court hearing the victim told her attacker she "prayed God would forgive him".The prosecution has alleged the accused, who cannot be named for legal reasons, broke into the West Launceston home of the 76-year-old woman in July 2015 when he was 18 years old, assaulting the woman and demanding $250 cash.

The court would hear expert testimony that she was in a "toxic delirium" at the time of the attack , he said. McMahon told the court Amati had messaged a friend after purchasing the axe , saying “OMG I just Out of the blue," he said. "Then I stood up and all the blood , bleeding profusely, it wouldn’t stop.

The transgender woman accused of taking an axe to innocent 7 - Eleven customers was in a 'psychosis' and heard voices telling her to kill, her lawyer said. Evie Amati had her charged upgraded to three counts of attempted murder over the alleged attack in Enmore, in Sydney ' s inner-west, on Saturday.

Mr Rimmer was struck in the face while Ms Hacker was hit in the back of the head.

Mr McMahon said the accused had previously spoken about fantasies of killing people and just one hour before the attack sent a message to a Facebook friend saying "most people deserve to die, I hate people and one day I am going to kill a lot of people".

Defence barrister Charles Waterstreet told the jury his client never intended to kill anyone and was not of sound mind that night.

He added that she was in a state of psychosis at the time of the attack, which was caused by her mental illness and a "toxic mixture" of gender transition hormone medication, cannabis, amphetamines and alcohol.

"The CCTV captures the body of Evie Amati, it captures it from the time she entered the 7-Eleven to the time she left, so the question you have to decide is where was her mind?" Mr Waterstreet told the jury.

Ms Amati cried as the jury was told about her gender dysmorphia, depression and the difficulty she had following gender reassignment surgery from man to woman.

"Her mind had deteriorated to such a state that in the early hours of the evening on the 7th of January she was out of her mind," Mr Waterstreet said.

The trial before Judge Mark Williams is expected to run for three weeks.
