A man will stand trial next month accused of attempted murder following an incident in Norwich where two woman were stabbed.
Paul Brine, 66, of Randell Close, North Walsham, has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder following an incident on Riverside Road, in Norwich, on November 8, last year.
Two women, in their 60s and 70s, suffered stab wounds outside an address on the road during the incident with both having to be taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for treatment.
Brine appeared at Norwich Crown Court via videolink from HMP Norwich on Friday (September 13) for a pre-trial review.
The court heard following psychiatric reports he would no longer be running insanity as a defence with intent now the only issue to decide.
