A LOCHGELLY woman carried out an attack using a butter knife.

The assailant was Samantha Seath, 20, of Russell Street.

She was not present when her case called at Dunfermline Sheriff Court but was represented by her solicitor.

Seath had admitted previously that on July 1, 2020, at her home, she assaulted a female by striking her on the body with a butter knife to her injury.

Defence solicitor David McLaughlin said: “She has difficulty controlling her emotions on occasions.”

Sheriff Wylie Robertson called for reports and for Seath’s attendance in court at sentencing on June 1.
