Australia: No jail for woman who poured scalding water on husband as he slept

Article here. Excerpt:

'On September 22, 2018, Australian woman Maria Doris Axiak, 58, attacked her husband while he slept by pouring boiling water over his face and torso. His crime? He said he wanted out of the marriage.

That night, he told Axiak that he was unhappy and wanted a separation, NCA Newswire reported. He said he would sleep in the guest bedroom so that she could sleep in the master bedroom, and after he fell asleep, Axiak smoked a cigarette before disconnecting the landline so that he could not call for help. She then boiled a pot of water and poured it over him as he slept.'
