A WOMAN accused of two serious assaults on a man committed on the same day has been ordered to stand trial at Taunton Crown Court.

Charlene Louise Crozier, 34, of Langmead Square, Crewkerne, appeared in the dock before Somerset Magistrates, sitting at Yeovil.

She was charged with two counts of assaulting the complainant causing him actual bodily harm at Crewkerne on July 8 last year.

The defendant pleaded not guilty to both allegations but the magistrates said the offences were so serious that they did not feel they had adequate powers to deal with the case.

They adjourned proceedings until March 9 when Crozier must appear before a pre-trial hearing at Taunton and in the meantime, released her on unconditional bail.
