A Burnley mum-of-one charged with stabbing her boyfriend has appeared in court.

Rhiann Burnie (20), of Boundary Street, was arrested at her home in the early hours of Sunday following an incident which has left 23-year-old victim Shane McMullen in a medically induced coma at Royal Blackburn Hospital.

Burnie was bailed to appear at Burnley Crown Court for a preliminary hearing on Monday, April 29th, on condition she lives in Preston Old Road, Blackburn, obeys a curfew of 9pm until 7am, does not contact the victim or witnesses and does not enter Burnley except to attend court.
