Cleator Moor woman admits wounding man

Carlisle Crown Court

A WOMAN was warned she could receive a prison sentence for unlawfully wounding a man.

Caroline Margaret McKelvey, 48, faced one charge when she appeared at Carlisle Crown Court earlier today (MON).

McKelvey denied the alleged wounding of Jordan Starkey with intent. However she admitted the alternative and lesser charge of unlawfully and maliciously wounding Mr Starkey.

Her offence is said to have been committed in June 4 at an address on High Street in Cleator Moor.

Judge James Adkin adjourned the case for the preparation of a pre-sentence report, and an psychiatric assessment.

McKelvey, of Jacktrees Road, Cleator Moor, was granted conditional bail and told she is due to be sentenced at the crown court on February 1.

“Simply because I am adjourning your case for reports, please don’t think I have decided what your sentence will be. I have not,” Judge Adkin told her.

“All options will be open on February 1.”
