Robyn Lawrence, chief executive of the North Metropolitan Health Service, did not comment on the case, but said that day leave and reintegration into the community were part of a clinical patient's clinical management plan.

Notification to the police is only required if there is a clinical risk to a volunteer patient or other person, said Dr. Lawrence.

"A thorough psychological assessment to determine a patient's risk to themselves and others is done before a patient is given leave or released by the mental health care assessment team," she said in a statement in January.

In January, Ms. Hales' friends and family honored her during a funeral in Bunbury, The Western Australian reported.

"It was never boring when she was around, she was so beautiful inside and out and had the most infectious laugh and the wildest stories," said friend Mandy Goodwin.

Bek Taylor, another friend, said she was grateful to be able to call Ms. Hales a friend.

De Beaux made a non-guilty plea to the Magistrates Court in Stirling Gardens on Wednesday after he was declared negotiable. His alleged victim is shown
