A 43-year-old woman today appeared in private from custody charged with the attempted murder of three men following a car crash in the city.

It is alleged that Donna Stewart, from Inverness, was at the wheel of a Mercedes E220 when it careered into the side of a building at the junction of Grant Street and Lochalsh Road on January 21.

She is accused of seriously injuring and attempting to murder her partner or former partner, Hugh Lowther, Stephen Macdonald and John Fraser. She also faces an additional charge of assaulting Mr Lowther, aggravated by the abuse of her partner or ex-partner.

She was in custody overnight and was brought before Sheriff Gary Aitken today. Stewart was represented by Inverness solicitor John MacColl.

She made no plea, was committed for further examination and released on bail.

She will next appear in due course.
