Have your say

A 78-YEAR-old woman accused of attempting to murder her husband was too infirm to appear in a court dock today.

Florence Thomson, of Sturton Way, Long Sutton, is charged with trying to kill Keith Thomson on November 11.

The elderly woman was unable to negotiate the steps from the cell area into the dock at Lincoln Crown Court and the hearing was conducted in her absence.

No plea was taken and she was remanded in custody to appear back before the Crown Court on February 3.
