Infidelity accusations may have lead to stabbing

INFIDELITY accusations, drug addiction and a serious stab wound were all present on the deck of a Sadliers Crossing home in November 2011.

Graham Alan Livingstone had gone to visit his old friend, Anthony Scott Roy Warwick at his Challinor St home on November 6, 2011.

Leaving another friend behind him to wait in the car, Livingstone accepted a boxer short-clad Warwick's invitation to come into his home.

What happened next is what a jury must establish to decide if Warwick and his boyfriend, Allen Lee Divo, are guilty or not guilty to attempting to murder Livingstone.

Warwick and Divo have pleaded not guilty in the Supreme Court in Brisbane and are on trial.

Giving evidence on Monday, Livingstone said he walked up the stairs of Warwick's home to spot Divo wielding a bat on the veranda.

He alleged Warwick accused him of having sexual relations with boyfriend Divo.

The court heard Livingstone - outlined in his statement to police - told Warwick that was "bulls**t" before turning to leave.

Livingstone told the court he went to open a gate on the veranda and was stabbed on his right side.

Livingstone said he jumped off the veranda but alleged Warwick and Divo pursued him in the front yard.

The court heard an excerpt from Livingstone's statement.

"The next thing bang, I was stabbed and I just had blood pouring out of my chest and I legged it as fast as I could," Livingstone said in his police statement.

Defence counsel for Warwick and Divo quizzed Livingstone on why he went to their client's home and his then-drug addiction.

Defence barrister James Godbolt suggested Livingstone went to the house to buy amphetamines.

"I don't wish to comment," Livingstone replied.

Livingstone admitted he had a drug problem at the time of the alleged stabbing.

Crown Prosecutor Dzenita Balic told the jury they would hear from an Ipswich Hospital doctor who claimed Mr Livingstone was very lucky to be alive.

"He would have died but for immediate medical attention," Ms Balic said the doctor would recall.

When police went to the Sadliers Crossing home after the stabbing, Warwick had left but police found Divo hosing the veranda, Ms Balic said.

If the jury are not satisfied beyond reasonable doubt Divo and Warwick committed attempted murder, there is an alternative charge of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

The Crown argued Warwick is the "doer" while Divo was the "assister".

The trial continues.
