A man accused of stomping on his ex-partner's neck and punching her in the head until she thought she would die has been granted bail to attend rehab.
The court heard on Monday the 40-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been in custody at Canberra's Alexander Maconochie Centre since September 5, 2019.
He previously pleaded not guilty to all 15 charges he faces, including two counts of causing grievous bodily harm, one count of choking his ex-partner, unlawful confinement, and several driving offences.
Documents tendered to the court said the McKellar resident's ex-partner visited him at a friend's unit about 1.30am on September 4, 2019, to talk about his drug use.
Police allege the man opened the door to his ex-partner and immediately grabbed her by her hair. He threw her against a wall and repeatedly punched her in the head, the documents said.
The woman got hold of her mobile phone and tried to call police, but the man allegedly threw the phone to the ground, cracking its screen.
The documents said he started to punch her in the head again; the woman thought he would not stop, and she was going to die.
Police allege one of the man's punches gave the woman a "significant laceration and bleeding". The laceration later required stitches and left her with a scar, the documents said.
The man allegedly stopped punching the woman and started to clean the laceration. When she tried to run for the unit's front door, he allegedly took hold of her, climbed on top of her, and choked her.
He allegedly told the woman, "I am gonna smash your teeth in", the documents said. He allegedly started to punch the woman again, chipping one of her teeth and dislodging another from its gum.
The documents said the man called the woman a c--- and a bitch and threw her to the ground. He allegedly repeatedly stomped on her neck with his full body weight.
When police arrived at the unit about 1.50am, the man allegedly stopped stomping on the woman's neck and told her to "shut up", "not say a word", and to clean herself up in the bathroom.
Officers went into the unit and saw bloodied paper towel on the floor, blood on a sheet in a bedroom, and blood on the bathroom floor, wall, and bath tub, the documents said.
The man was arrested and his ex-partner was admitted to hospital.
In court on Tuesday, the man's defence lawyer made his fifth application for bail, on grounds he had been accepted into a residential rehabilitation program.
The prosecution opposed the application, arguing the man would be unlikely to show up to court if he was granted bail, and was at risk of committing crimes.
The alleged September incident involved "incredibly violent offending including stomping on the throat" of the alleged victim, a prosecutor said.
Magistrate James Lawton granted the man bail with conditions including that he not assault or harass his alleged victim, and not leave the rehabilitation program - except to appear in court.
"Rehabilitation would ultimately lead to a reduction in recidivism," Mr Lawton said.
The man is due in court again at a later date.
