Coleraine Woman Accused Of Setting Fire To Man’s Clothing And Bedding Has Case Sent To Crown Court

1 Mins read

A WOMAN charged with several offences including arson of clothing and bedding belonging to a man has had her case sent to Antrim Crown Court. Lynn Evelyn Corscadden, (53), of Ballyness Park in Castleroe near Coleraine, is alleged to have committed the offences on November 3 last year.

She faces nine charges including taking a vehicle without authority; driving whilst disqualified; aggravated burglary of a property at Letterloan Road, Macosquin, when she allegedly attempted to inflict grievous bodily harm on the man whilst having a hammer; threatening to kill the man and a charge of assault against the man.

Corscadden is also charged with possessing offensive weapons – a hammer and a knife – with intent to commit assault occasioning grievous bodily harm and criminal damage to a headboard, wall and TV belonging to the man.
She is also accused of attempting to damage a window pane and arson of clothing and bedding belonging to the man.

During a Preliminary Enquiry – the legal step to send a case to the Crown Court – a prosecutor told Coleraine Magistrates Court on Monday that on the basis of the papers before the court there was a case to answer.

Defence solicitor Garrett Greene had no contrary submissions and District Judge Liam McNally said there were sufficient grounds to send the case to Antrim Crown Court on June 26.
Corscadden was released on continuing bail.
