TWO suspects from Barrhead appeared in court today over claims they tried to murder a woman by driving a car at her.

Alix McIntyre, 24, and 29-year-old William Carrick, both of the town's Carlibar Road, are charged with attacking Jacqueline Prentice on November 26, 2020.

The pair together face an allegation of driving a vehicle at Miss Prentice in Priesthill Road, Pollok, Glasgow, hitting her on the body.

The attempted murder charge states the vehicle was then reversed before again hitting Miss Prentice, causing her to be pinned against a wall.

Prosecutors allege this was done to her severe injury, permanent impairment and disfigurement, as well as to the danger of her life.

The charge also alleges that the pair did previously show ill will towards Miss Prentice.

McIntyre alone faces a separate accusation of driving that day and failing to stop after allegedly hitting another vehicle.

Both she and Carrick were in the dock for a hearing at the High Court in Glasgow.

McIntyre's lawyer, Donna Armstrong, said: "She pleads not guilty to the charges on the indictment."

Callum Hiller, defending Carrick, told the court his client was also denying the accusation he faces.

Lady Stacey fixed a trial due to begin in March next year in Glasgow.

The case could last around four days.

In the meantime, McIntyre and Carrick remain on bail.
