“My client has very little or no memory of it at all,” Amati’s high profile defence laywer Charles Waterstreet told the court.
Mr Waterstreet said Amati’s condition was “consistent with psychosis”.
Mr Waterstreet intended to apply for Amati’s release on bail in court on Thursday.
He only found out Thursday morning that the 24-year-old was facing three new charges, following the vicious attack on Saturday morning.The court heard Amiti's condition was "consistent with psychosis".
Two of the charges relate to wounding with intent to murder and another for attempting the same offence against a third person, outside the 7-11.
