CORNER BROOK The woman accused of stabbing a man and assaulting a woman in Corner Brook last week has been freed from jail.
Mary Lewis, 36, was released in provincial court Tuesday on the consent of Crown attorney Ed Ring. The accused’s mother posted a $2,000 cash surety and Lewis is subject to a number of conditions she must obey until her legal matter is dealt with.
The RNC was called to a disturbance in a home in the Curling area of the city last Thursday night. Lewis was charged with assaulting a 35-year-old woman and assaulting a 32-year-old man using a weapon.
It is alleged she stabbed the man, who was treated at Western Memorial Regional Hospital for what police described as non-life-threatening injuries. It was reported he received multiple knife wounds.
Lewis, who has a black eye herself, was represented by defence lawyer Robbie Ash when she appeared in court Tuesday. She had been held in custody over the weekend, and her matter was postponed Monday because the legal-aid office in Corner Brook had a conflict representing her.
Lewis must remain in a specific Corner Brook residence between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m., and is not permitted to drink alcohol or enter any licensed liquor establishment. She is also not allowed to traffic in illegal drugs, according to court documents.
She is not allowed to be in possession of a knife or other weapon, and must sign in at the RNC office in Corner Brook Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays. She is also not allowed to contact either of the alleged victims and is not permitted at the residence where the disturbance was reported.
Lewis will be back in court April 23.
