Mr Rimmer was struck in the face while Ms Hacker was hit in the back of the head.

Mr McMahon said the accused had previously spoken about fantasies of killing people and just one hour before the attack sent a message to a Facebook friend saying "most people deserve to die, I hate people and one day I am going to kill a lot of people".

Defence barrister Charles Waterstreet told the jury his client never intended to kill anyone and was not of sound mind that night.

He added that she was in a state of psychosis at the time of the attack, which was caused by her mental illness and a "toxic mixture" of gender transition hormone medication, cannabis, amphetamines and alcohol.

"The CCTV captures the body of Evie Amati, it captures it from the time she entered the 7-Eleven to the time she left, so the question you have to decide is where was her mind?" Mr Waterstreet told the jury.

Ms Amati cried as the jury was told about her gender dysmorphia, depression and the difficulty she had following gender reassignment surgery from man to woman.

"Her mind had deteriorated to such a state that in the early hours of the evening on the 7th of January she was out of her mind," Mr Waterstreet said.

The trial before Judge Mark Williams is expected to run for three weeks.
