Man on attempted murder charge
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.
