A doctor accused of murdering her husband during a domestic dispute in Western Australia's Mid West region will stand trial in November.

Chamari Rasika Denuwanthe Gunathilaka Liyanage, 34, has pleaded not guilty to killing her husband, Dinedra Athukorala, who was also a doctor at Geraldton Health Campus.

Dr Athukorala, who is understood to have been from Sri Lanka, could not be resuscitated after police found him injured at a Shenton St property on June 24, 2014.

Liyanage formally pleaded not guilty to his murder in the Supreme Court of Western Australia via video link from Greenough Regional Prison on Thursday.

The court heard mental health experts would be called by the defence during her trial, which is scheduled to start in Geraldton on November 9.

Liyanage was remanded in custody to appear in the same court in August for a status conference. (au.news)

    Men can be victims of domestic violence and it is a known entity..During disputes both parties can exert physical violence against each other and the woman becomes the victim due to shear imbalance of physical power.This may not be the case all of the times and man can be a victim as well some times.This is of course an extreme case and if this woman is mentally sound this can be a case of manslaughter rather than murder.If she has mental health issues it is a different story altogether.

    She may be mentally sick which made her to commit the murder. She must have pleaded not guilty on that ground. Mental sickness go without treatment as most people are ignorant of it.

    Its a very unfortunate situation. All should practice principles of whatever their religion. Most professionals in Australia are very much into their religious activities. Please learn from this unfortunate incidents and take your children to correct path.
