A Mansfield man accused of trying to murder his wife has appeared in court.

Maurice Joseph Poismans (68), of The Patchills, was at Nottingham Crown Court on Monday where the case was adjourned until 9th December pending further health reports.

He did not enter a plea. Police had been called to Poismans’ home address, on a warden-controlled estate, on the morning of Sunday, 25th November last year, following a report that a woman had been found with stab wounds.
