The family of a woman stabbed to death in her workplace in Adelaide has spoken outside court calling for an end to gendered violence.

In December last year, Julie Seed died and her colleague Susan Scardigno was seriously injured at the real estate agency where they worked.

Shaun Michaels Dunk was charged with murder and attempted murder. 

Speaking outside of court today, Ms Seed’s fiance Chris Smith said he wanted to see more done to address violence against women in Australia.

“[We] need to make sure we’re standing by the ladies in our lives and honour our women and not harm [them],” Mr Smith said.

“The attacks with knives at the moment are unacceptable and something needs to be done.”

Susan Scardigno and her partner Sean Sykes also attended the hearing today, with Mr Sykes urging people to use the hashtags #HonourNotHarm and #EnoughIsEnough.

“The hashtag is really important to Sue and Chris as a way of honouring what’s happened to Julie,” Mr Sykes said.

“All men particularly, and women, can really get behind the cause and the hashtag by posting.

“Men have got to be a part of the conversation; we’ve got to lead from the front and be a voice around these things and not be silent.”

Shaun Michaels Dunk, 30, is yet to plead to the charges of murder and attempted murder. 

The matter will return to court in June.

South Australia’s Supreme Court heard Mr Dunk, who appeared via videolink, had been transferred from forensic mental health facility James Nash House to the Adelaide Remand Centre.

Trish Johnson, the defence lawyer for Mr Dunk, asked the court for extra time to obtain a toxicology report and psychiatric assessment to determine whether he was fit to stand trial.

Ms Johnson said a visiting psychiatrist was seeing Mr Dunk at the Adelaide Remand Centre on an “as-needs basis”.

“The issues of fitness to stand trial and competence to have committed the offences are currently being examined,” she said.

“A valid opinion can’t be provided without toxicology evidence – we don’t have that yet.”
