Woman took cab to go stab ex-lover, court told

A woman allegedly stabbed her ex-partner six times after taking a taxi to his flat in Belfast, the High Court has heard.

Maxine Simpson inflicted face and leg injuries on him with a knife taken from a friend's house, according to the prosecution.

It was claimed that before launching the attack she shouted: "You b******, wait to you see what I have for you."

Simpson (35), of no fixed abode, faces charges of possessing a blade or point and attempted grievous bodily harm with intent.

She was granted temporary bail to visit her newborn grandchild.

The stabbing incident occurred near a block of flats at The Mount, Belfast, on October 15.

Simpson had been there with the victim when an argument broke out, the court heard.

She was removed and taken to a friend's house where she allegedly took a kitchen knife and announced she was going back.

Kate McKay, prosecuting, said the victim received text messages from Simpson's daughter to warn she was on her way down in a taxi with a knife.

It was claimed that she stabbed him five times in the thigh and once in the cheek.

Following her arrest Simpson claimed she had failed to take medication and it was not her intention to stab the man.
