A man is to go on trial for the attempted murder of his estranged wife following an incident where two women suffered stab wounds in Riverside Road in Norwich.

Paul Brine, 65, of Randell Close, North Walsham, appeared for a hearing at Norwich Crown Court where he admitted one count of unlawful wounding involving one of the women, but the court heard he will still go on trial for the attempted murder of his estranged wife.

Judge Stephen Holt adjourned the case until May 7 and Brine was then remanded in custody until his trial.

Brine was arrested following the incident on Riverside Road, in Norwich, on November 8, last year, in which two women, in their 60s and 70s, suffered stab wounds outside an address on the road. Both women were taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital following the incident.
