Timothy Joseph Foley
Foley, who has a long history of fraud, was initially charged with intentionally causing the 41-year-old woman grievous bodily harm but the charge was upgraded when she died in Christchurch Hospital on June 30, 2012.
Foley the victim, who were neighbours, had an intermittent relationship. Police attended a domestic dispute between the pair on June 4, 2012, and a trespass order was issued against Foley.
Late on June 9 Foley assaulted Lawrence multiple times with a crowbar. He phoned 111 almost immediately and placed a blanket over her. In the 111 call, Foley made it clear he was the culprit. He told the call taker the injuries were quite bad and he could not contain the bleeding. He then abandoned Lawrence lying unconscious.
