The teenage son of a TV star accused of stabbing a 17-year-old in the heart during a drug deal has failed in his attempt to keep his identity a secret as the alleged victim remains in critical condition unlikely to survive becomes.

Jaden Anthony Martinovich, 18, was released on bail on Wednesday and released from Hakea Prison – after serving the last 48 hours in jail – charged with seriously injuring a young man with a knife in North Perth, after the two supposedly wrestled for a blade.

Martinovich appeared via audiovisual link at Perth Magistrates Court on Wednesday for the second straight day, where he was assisted in court by his parents, Kelly and Levi Martinovich.

Mrs Martinovich is an aerobics star of the 1980s and 90s who appeared on the popular TV show Aerobics Oz Style which ran on Channel 10 for 23 years ending in 2005 with more than 6000 episodes.

One fitness publication described her as “Australia’s Leading Personal Trainer”.

Prosecutors allege that on the night of the alleged incident, police have dashcam audio of Martinovich’s car, where he is accused of buying a bag of sea salt on the pretense that it was the drug meth,” reported The West Australian.

“Tonight I’m going to sleep like a baby knowing I put a knife into a c… vital organs. That’s great, I love doing that,” police will claim, Martinovich says in the footage.

Martinovich allegedly arranged a drug deal with the victim on social media before driving to a parking lot near Bourke Street with two teenage associates.

Police prosecutors will, after a brief conversation, claim the victim got into his car and drove away while his two associates were still inside.

Martinovich then allegedly chased the car down, opened the driver’s door and told the victim to “get out.”

Then he is said to have stabbed the 17-year-old in the heart.

Martinovich was granted strict bail with $25,000 bail and $100,000 surety bond.

Judge Richard Huston told the court he would not extend a suppressive order to keep his name secret because there was “no legal basis” for concealing Martinovich’s identity.

However, he extended the restraining order that prevented the publication of the victim’s identity, which he had done out of respect for his family.

The matter will next appear in court on September 14.
