Warwickshire Telegraph - - NEWS - By KATY HAL­LAM

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.
