Court waits for medical evidence
MEDICAL evidence is still outstanding in the case of a violent scissor attack on two men at a Christmas party at Upper Main Arm community hall in 2012.
Dean Andrew Kenning, 26, faces two counts of attempted murder, two counts of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and one count of reckless wounding over the December 21 incident.
The charges relate to an incident outside the hall between 11.30pm and 11.50pm involving Kenning and Peter Jeremy and Eric Funnell.
About 11.30pm, police allege Mr Jeremy and Mr Funnell attended the party where there were about 200 guests.
A short time later, police allege Kenning attacked the two men with scissors. Mr Jeremy and Mr Funnell were taken to Tweed Hospital with serious injuries to their necks and faces.
On Tuesday, Lismore Local Court heard medical evidence and police statements were needed to complete the brief of evidence. Magistrate David Heilpern ordered the brief to be served by May 6 and adjourned Kenning's matters until May 20.
