Lennox Herald - - FRONT PAGE - Lor­raine Weir

A man has ap­peared in court charged with at­tempt­ing to mur­der a mum at her home in Bon­hill.

Liam McCaf­ferty from Alexan­dria ap­peared in pri­vate from cus­tody at Dum­bar­ton Sher­iff Court on Mon­day.

He was charged with wil­ful fir­erais­ing to the dan­ger of life and at­tempted mur­der at the prop­erty at Red­burn on Tues­day, July 25.

The 27-year-old made no plea or dec­la­ra­tion and was re­manded in cus­tody.

He was com­mit­ted for fur­ther ex­am­i­na­tion and is due to ap­pear again next week.

Su­san War­ing, 44, was res­cued from her home in Red­burn in the early hours of July 25 af­ter be­com­ing trapped in­side due to a blaze.

Neigh­bours could hear her scream­ing for help and tried to get to the mum-of­five, later taken out by fire­fight­ers, but were over­whelmed by smoke.

Su­san woke up from a coma nine days af­ter the fire and has since been re­leased from the Royal Alexan­dra Hos­pi­tal in Pais­ley.
