A MAN accused of slitting a woman's throat in Sydney's west will remain behind bars until his next court appearance.

The 42-year-old woman was left fighting for life on Saturday afternoon from the horrific injuries, as Sydney's alleged spate of domestic violence, which has claimed three lives in the past fortnight, continues.

Police will allege 43-year-old Kevin Dean Scroop got into an argument with the woman at a Linde Rd Glendenning property just before 4pm on Saturday.

Scroop is accused of slitting her throat after the fight escalated.

He has been charged with wounding a person with the intent of causing grievous bodily harm.

Dressed in prison greens and sporting a mullet hair cut, he appeared via video link at Parramatta Bail Court this afternoon.

"Can you please tell me how she is? I've been asking all night I've got no idea," he asked the court.

His legal aid solicitor Edward Tyler said Scroop would not be making an application for bail and it was formally refused.

Magistrate John Favretto adjourned the matter to Wednesday at Blacktown Local Court where he said Scroop would enter a plea.

Scroop shook his head and got up after no receiving an answer to his question about the woman's condition.

Police this morning said she is in a critical but stable condition at Westmead Hospital where she underwent surgery.

In the last fortnight three NSW people have been killed due to alleged acts of domestic violence.

Russell Brian Wood, 26, has been charged with murdering his estranged girlfriend Sarah Brown after the 30-year-old was found with a stab wound last Saturday.

Central Coast mother Blair Dalton, 35, was allegedly strangled and beaten by her former partner Lance Michael Pearce on Tuesday and died in Gosford Hospital two days later.

Pearce was later found dead in his cell.

An elderly man was also allegedly killed after being stabbed in Sydney's south-west more than a week ago.
