A 19-YEAR-OLD has appeared in court charged with attempted murder following a serious incident in Darlington.

Kelsie Louise Godfrey appeared before magistrates in Newton Aycliffe this morning following the stabbing of a 35-year-old man in Darlington in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The court heard that the victim was stabbed once in the chest area at Godfrey’s home address in Warwick Square, Darlington and he remains in hospital in a critical condition.

Miss Godfrey, who sobbed throughout the hearing, was denied bail by magistrates.

She was remanded in custody until July 31 when she will appear at Teesside Crown Court.
