The fight between the two women came after Ms Schiller became angry at learning Ms Evertson-Motsert had taken $50 from her bedroom, the Supreme Court heard on Thursday.
Prosecutor Mark Rochford, QC, told a jury Ms Evertson-Motsert took the money and bought the drug ice, which she intended to sell. It was Ms Evertson-Motsert’s intention to return the money to Ms Schiller, the court heard.
In his opening address, Mr Rochford said a man at the house that night, Travis Lines, saw Ms Schiller arrive and begin “arking up” over the missing money.
Ms Schiller was overheard to say: “I don’t care if she took it or not, I’ll gut her.”
