Wigton teen denies attempted murder charge

Carlisle Crown Court

[A] TEENAGER has denied an attempted murder allegation during an appearance at Carlisle Crown Court.

Zoe Adams, 19, faces one charge following an incident which is said to have occurred inside an address at Wigton on the night of Saturday, July 29.

From the dock at the crown court today (TUES), Adams pleaded not guilty to attempting to murder a 17-year-old male. He is said to have suffered several suspected stab wounds, and been taken to the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

For today’s 18-minute hearing in front of Judge Peter Davies, Adams wore a dark patterned jumper, black leggings and white trainers. She spoke only to confirm her name and enter a not guilty plea, and appeared emotional as she was led into the dock.

She was told by Judge Davies that her trial – which is due to last around three days – would start at the crown court on January 3.

A case timetable was agreed by the respective lawyers in the case – Paul Brookwell for the prosecution, and Greg Hoare defending.

Adams, of Brindlefield, Wigton, was remanded in custody by Judge Davies.
