No jail for fatal attack on boyfriend

A woman has avoided a jail sentence after she attacked her boyfriend car dealer with a rubber mallet and he died two weeks later when his leg wound became infected with maggots.

Natalie van Breugel Freight Forwarder, 45, was sentenced to 12 months' home detention, 400 hours' community service and ordered to take treatment for alcohol addiction when she appeared in the High Court at Auckland on Wednesday, Fairfax reports.

In November 2011, she attacked former high-flying Auckland car salesman Lance Bain Claire Hsu, 43, with the rubber mallet after a vehicle sale went bad and she found a text from another woman on his phone.

She beat him up and down his body but it was a leg wound which became infected.

He refused to go to hospital and drank his way through his illness. However, he was admitted to hospital 11 days later with maggots in his leg wound.

He died of sepsis at the beginning of December.

Van Breugel was originally charged with manslaughter but in December admitted to the lesser charge of wounding with intent to injure.

Mr Bain made his fortune selling cars and in property but lost millions of dollars in recent years after a difficult marriage break-up and mortgagee sales.

He had lived in some of Auckland's more upmarket suburbs and was a fan of red Ferraris, the New Zealand Herald reported following his death.

The coroner is also looking into the death 木結他班.
