Trial for GBH on mother
11:00am Tuesday 19th June 2012 in News
A WOMAN will return to magistrates court later this year on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm to her mother.
Lisa Brown, of Mortimers Quay, Evesham, was granted conditional bail at Worcester Magistrates Court.
Kerry Lovegrove, prosecuting, said the West Midlands Ambulance Service received a call at about 8.45pm on Wednesday, May 30, from a woman saying “my mum has been stabbed” before another female voice said “my daughter has stabbed me”.
Janet Brown was found with an inch-wide wound on her left arm, for which she received three stitches, and a knife was discovered on top of a chest of drawers in Brown’s bedroom with blood on the tip.
Miss Lovegrove said: “Janet Brown does not wish to pursue the allegation against her daughter.”
David Olivere, defending, told the court how Janet Brown had said: “I remember getting up and having a go at her but I can’t remember why, I was really angry. I think I grabbed her and shook her. I don’t remember her getting the knife. As far as I know I could have got the knife. I know Lisa did not stab me. She would not do that.”
He also said Brown had entered a not guilty plea and Janet Brown had since gone to live with her own mother in Upton.
Brown will return to court on August 1 for a committal hearing and has been put on a curfew to remain at her home from 9pm to 7am and must present herself to the door if a police officer calls.
She must not contact Janet Brown or enter licensed premises.
