Woman to stand trial over alleged attack in pub
A WOMAN accused of leaving a mum with horrific head injuries after attacking her in the toilets of a Coventry pub will stand trial.
Bobbyjane Boyne, 48, of Corbet Road, Radford, was charged with assault following an incident in The Oak Inn pub in Gosford Street on February 24 last year.
After pleading not guilty to the charge, she will now stand trial at Warwick Crown Court on March 11.
Ms Boyne is accused of attacking Anne-Marie Szwed.
The mum-of-one had to have five stitches following the attack, prosecutor John Cardiff told Coventry Magistrates’ Court at a previous hearing.
Mr Cardiff, for the prosecution, said: “This was an unprovoked assault in a nightclub toilet.
“The complainant suffered head injuries, psychological damage and loss of earnings.
“She ended up with five stitches.”
Presiding magistrate Bruce Oliver then told Ms Boyne the case was too serious to be dealt with by magistrates and ordered the case to be sent to the crown court.
