A 20-year-old woman who was charged with attempted murder following an incident in Lowestoft last year will be sentenced in March after admitting a less serious charge of assault.
Olivia Wright was arrested after police were called to an address at Crown Street East just after 4.30am on Saturday, May 27, last year to reports another young woman had been struck several times with a bottle.
Lily Nunn, 21, was taken to the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston and was found to have a cut and bruising to her head. She was later discharged.
Today (Friday, January 26) Wright, 20, of Crown Street East, Lowestoft, appeared at Ipswich Crown Court via a video link from Peterborough prison and denied attempting to murder Miss Nunn.
She admitted a less serious direct alternative charge of assault causing actual bodily harm and a not guilty verdict was entered on the court record on the attempted murder charge.

Sentencing was adjourned until March 1 for a psychiatric report and Wright was remanded in custody.
