    Police said Dean Yarnton fell asleep in his car as his wife Sharon drove him home from a Merrylands function in the early hours of Sunday.

    But when he woke up in his Nissan Navara in the Georges River National Park, Picnic Point, he found a gas bottle inside and diesel fuel poured outside.

    There was a second nine-kilogram gas bottle near the car’s petrol tank, police said.

    His 48-year-old wife — a senior Corrective Services officer — was charged on Monday with his attempted murder.

    Later that day, Fady Houda, 48, and Monique Hayes, 23, went to Miranda police station to meet Bankstown detectives.

    The pair were charged with attempted murder.

    Ms Hayes and her partner Ms Houda did not apply for bail which was refused in Sutherland Court on Tuesday.

    The Yarntons recently sold their four-bedroom, Menai home but were living together at the time of the alleged murder attempt.

    In the past few years, Mrs Yarnton has posted many loving tributes to her husband and never hinted at any relationship breakdown.

    Mrs Yarnton, Ms Hayes and Mr Houda will remain in custody until their court appearance in March.

    A NSW Corrective Services spokesman said Mrs Yarnton had been suspended without pay from her duties.
