A GREENOCK woman has been charged with repeatedly knifing another female to severe injury and permanent disfigurement.

Mareissa Collins is accused of striking the alleged victim on the body with a blade at a flat in Prospecthill Court last Tuesday.

Collins, 30, of a separate address in Prospecthill Court, made no plea through lawyer David Tod during a petition hearing in private at Greenock Sheriff Court.

Sheriff Joseph Hughes continued the case for further examination and remanded her in custody.
