A Binnu farmer accused of near-daily “extreme” acts of family violence against his former partner was granted bail yesterday under 24-hour home detention. Bjorn Andrew Wilson has remained in custody since he was arrested in Geraldton last Monday and charged with 42 offences, including endangering life, making threats to kill, strangulation and persistent family violence. Police have accused the 45-year-old of terrorising the woman over a six-year period at his West Binnu farm, with alleged verbal, emotional and physical abuse on almost a daily basis. Last week, the Geraldton Guardian was given permission to read the material facts against Mr Wilson which included a long list of alleged offences occurring in Perth, Geraldton, Fremantle and Binnu. One allegation involved Mr Wilson holding a knife against the woman’s back in 2017, telling her he would “bury her in the back paddock”. “No one will f...ing find you or your f...ing kids ever,” he allegedly said. Another involved her hiding from him in a paddock at the property and only returning when he allegedly threatened to harm her children. He allegedly then fractured her jaw by throwing a vase at her face in a fit of rage. Mr Wilson reappeared in Geraldton Magistrate’s Court yesterday, where Mr Miocevich said there were “strong and compelling” reasons why he should and should not get bail. Arguing for bail, lawyer George Giudice said there had been no allegations of violence or abuse since the couple separated in November and Mr Wilson would face financial ruin if he remained in custody. “The court should have some confidence my client isn’t a danger to the complainant,” Mr Giudice said. Prosecutors disagreed, with Sgt Beau Jones arguing the allegations were just so serious bail would be inappropriate. Mr Wilson was granted bail to return to his farm after home detention equipment had been installed. He will be under 24-hour monitoring, with protective bail conditions and a restraining order protecting the woman and her two children who police say corroborate some allegations. “If you breach your home detention, there’s a high likelihood you won’t be given another chance,” Mr Miocevich warned him. Mr Wilson will return to court on August 19.
