A Sydney restaurateur accused of stabbing her husband to death, has revealed the pair's final moments together.
Qian Liu pleaded not guilty to murdering her husband Han Lim Chin, 39, who was stabbed on January 3, 2016 in their Riverwood granny flat.
Fronting NSW Supreme court Monday, the 35-year-old told how in their final moments her husband had said 'I love you very much,' to which she replied, 'I love you very much too, if you love me you have to hold on'.
The Crown claimed Liu deliberately stabbed her husband, while the defence argued she had not realised the cover had come off the knife or that she had stabbed him.
Liu told the jury that the couple had argued and at one stage she had grabbed a sheathed kitchen knife Mr Chin had reportedly put into the bumbag he was wearing.
She said she had touched his chest with the knife, before asking him asking him 'do you want to kill yourself or do you want to kill me'.
'He answered: "How can I kill you, I love you so much and how can I kill myself, I am not the sort of person who can tolerate pain",' Liu said.
She claimed she had no intention of hurting him when she swung towards him holding the knife, demonstrating the movement using a pen.
'I realised the knife did not have the cover on... I saw something pink on the blade of the knife,' Liu told the court.
After seeing her husband slumped following his reply that 'nothing' was wrong, she told him if he was injured they needed to go to hospital as soon as possible.
Liu told the jury her husband had alleged unfounded suspicions of her having an affair with her personal trainer.
She told of his claims that she had been seen driving to the trainer's home and serving him abalone soup.
'I didn't cook the abalone soup for him (the trainer), everyone in the family had a serve of that,' she said.
On the evening of January 3, she had reportedly asked her husband if he wanted a divorce, and had sent him eight messages pushing him to decide.
