A WOMAN accused of stabbing her boyfriend through the eye with a stiletto heel while on a night out in Huddersfield is due to appear in court.

Staci Hargreaves, 33, from Stalybridge, Cheshire, was charged after Gavin Taylor, 28, was taken to hospital following the attack earlier this year.

He suffered the injury in the back of a taxi while travelling home from a night out in Huddersfield with Hargreaves, his girlfriend.

Police said the stiletto penetrated Mr Taylor's eye socket and touched his brain.

Hargreaves is charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

She is due to appear before a judge at Bradford Crown Court for a plea and case management hearing.
