A Nimbin man remains behind bars while police compile evidence against him over allegedly attacking his partner with a hammer in April.
David Mana and his 47 year-old partner were at home on Gungas Road, Nimbin, at about 10am on Friday April 21, when they allegedly became involved in an argument.
Police were been told his partner was assaulted with a hammer and stabbed multiple times before the man fled the scene.
Despite her injuries she was able to contact Triple Zero.
Emergency services treated her for multiple stab wounds to her legs, arms and torso.
She was taken to Lismore Base Hospital where she underwent surgery.
Mr Mana was arrested about midday on Saturday, April 21, by Richmond Local Area Command detectives and taken to Lismore police station.
There he was charged with causing wounding with intent to murder, and wounding a person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, and refused bail.
When police refused Mr Mana bail they noted on court documents he suffered from bi-polar disorder and had been the carer for his partner for 22 years.
On Tuesday, Mr Mana was represented at Lismore Local Court by solicitor Hugh Van-Dugteren.
The court heard the Director of Public Prosecutions had elected to take carriage of the matters.
Mr Van-Dugteren did not apply for bail which was formally refused by Magistrate Jeff Linden, who adjourned Mr Mana’s matter until August 8.
