Murder-accused Malcolm Webster's second wife claimed that when she accused him of trying to kill her he told her: "You would have died happy."
Felicity Drumm, 50, was giving evidence at the trial of 51-year-old Webster who denies trying to kill her by drugging her and by staging a car crash.
She told the High Court in Glasgow that after the car crash she met Webster, who had moved into a motel, in a supermarket car park near to her home in Auckland .
Miss Drumm said: "I challenged him. I said it was quite clear his intention had been to kill me.
"He said I would have died happy. I had never been happier. He had given me love, marriage and a child. In other words I should be grateful."
Prosecutor Derek Ogg QC asked her if she was sure Webster had said she would have died happy and she replied: "Yes."
When asked what her reaction to his remarks were she said: "I felt sick and I felt repulsed by him. I had intended to spend the rest of my life with him."
Miss Drumm was asked if she still loved Webster and replied: "Not in the same way. I was very certain my marriage was over."
She told the court that she met Webster alone, but her uncle was parked nearby in a parking space in the car park and could see what was going on.
But she told the court that she gave Webster a lift back to his motel after he complained of blisters on his feet and said he had no money for a taxi.
The court heard that when Miss Drumm examined papers belonging to Webster she discovered that he had insured her life for $1.9m NZ dollars.
She also found after looking in his computer emails to friends in which he described her as suffering from post-natal depression after the birth of their son and added that she needed close supervision for her own safety.
Miss Drumm also found that Webster had bought a number of antiques in New Zealand using the joint account they had and had arranged to have them shipped back to the UK.
After there confrontation in the car park Miss Drumm went to the police about Webster and he was charged with dangerous driving. By the time the police came to serve the papers on him he had left New Zealand.
Miss Drumm said that she has taken Webster to court in New Zealand and added: "He owes me in excess of half a million dollars."
She added that Webster had also been banned from entering New Zealand.
