Police were called out just after 11.35pm on Monday, September 9 following reports a woman had been attacked at a house on Victoria Road, in Lowestoft.

On arrival officers discovered Sarah Crush, aged in her 30s, who had suffered a serious head injury.

She was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge via air ambulance.

A Suffolk Police spokesman said: "She remains in hospital, with her condition now described as stable."

Stephen Crush, 59, of Victoria Road was arrested on suspicion of attempting to murder his wife and subsequently charged with attempted murder.

Crush appeared at Norwich Magistrates' Court on September 11 when he spoke only to confirm his details during the short hearing.

After the case was sent to Ipswich Crown Court for a plea and trial preparation hearing on October 9, it was adjourned to allow a psychiatric report to be prepared on him.

The case was adjourned until November 13 for a further case management hearing and a provisional trial date was set for March 10 as Crush was remanded in custody.
