by jealous ex
A DRUNKEN man, consumed by jealous
feelings for his former wife, stabbed her.
Their daughter, who tried to stop the assault, was
struck to the eye, causing her to fall over.
And a police officer was also assaulted when he tried
to arrest the man.
When Gregory Ladd confronted his ex-wife about
seeing other men including his brother, she told him
they were no longer together and said he should not
be ‘jealousing’ her.
She had been drinking with friends in the front yard
of a home when Ladd turned up.
When he tried to strike her, another person inter-
vened and then his wife walked up to him and punched
him on the nose, causing it to bleed.
Ladd then announced he was going to stab her and
pulled a 30cm-long knife from his pocket.
He chased his wife to the side of the house, grabbed
her by the hair, pulled her to the ground and stabbed
her three times.
As the couple’s daughter tried to push him away,
Ladd threw his elbow back towards her, striking her
in the eye and causing her to fall to the ground.
Although he fled the scene, police officers found
him standing in a nearby yard, still holding the knife.
When he refused calls to drop the knife, officers
drew their tasers but Ladd was saved from being
zapped when his aunt came from behind and dis-
The woman was medevacced to Alice Springs for
emergency surgery to treat internal bleeding and
lacerations to her spleen and bowel.
During his recent sentencing in the Supreme Court
in Alice Springs for the offence that occurred in
April, Ladd pleaded guilty to the offences as well
as to assaulting a police officer by threatening him
with the knife.
He expressed shame for his conduct and said he
planned to undertake rehabilitation courses however
his long criminal record, which included previous
attacks on his wife for which he had been jailed and
assaulting police officers, did not bode well with
Justice Anthony Riley.
“Your violent history is quite disturbing,” Justice
“In all the circumstances, I regard your prospects for
rehabilitation as being poor to moderate.”
“Offending of this kind is regrettably common in the
Northern Territory and particularly in Central Austra-
lia. Violent attacks by drunken Aboriginal men upon
vulnerable people, usually partners or wives who are
themselves affected by alcohol and who are unable to
defend themselves, occur with disturbing frequency.
“In your case, the stabbing of your wife was very
violent ... you are fortunate that she did not die.”
Justice Riley said such attacks often occurred in
circumstances where there was little or no provocation
and were senseless attacks that would not occur but
for the excessive consumption of alcohol.
“In this case, your concern was that your wife, from
whom you had long been separated, may have been
interested in another man,” he said.
“This was a persistent attack which continued after
people tried to intervene to protect your wife. You
were intent on continuing the attack no matter what.”
Ladd was sentenced to five and a half years im-
prisonment, with a non-parole period of three years
- backdated to April to take into account time already
spent in custody.
