A Lurgan woman accused of wounding another female with intent to cause her grievous bodily harm will face Crown Court proceedings later this year.

The 20-year-old appeared at Craigavon Magistrates’ Court on Friday for the purposes of a preliminary enquiry (PE), the legal process during which a case is referred to the higher court.

Chelsea Wilson, of Lilburn Hall, is charged with a single count of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm.

As the charges were read, it was heard that this was alleged to have occurred on August 8, 2020.

Appearing via videolink from her solicitor’s office, the defendant made no objection to the holding of a preliminary enquiry.

Prosecution submitted that based on the papers before the court there was a prima facie case to answer.

Defence barrister Scott McWhinney made no contrary submissions.

District Judge Bernie Kelly was satisfied there was a prima facie case to answer and Wilson was released on her own bail of £500 to appear before Craigavon Crown Court on September 10 for arraignment.

Conditions of her bail include that she have no contact with the alleged injured party or other named individuals and not to be within 100-metres of Gary’s Bar in Portadown.
