A man has appeared at Northampton Crown Court charged with attempting to murder a 54-year-old woman in Wellingborough a few days after Christmas.
Jan Penkiewicz, 51, of Albert Road, Wellingborough, was arrested following an incident at the home in Albert Road on Saturday, December 27.
He appeared in court last Wednesday through a video link to Woodhill Prison in Milton Keynes.
However, Penkiewicz said he was unable to understand the proceedings and needed an interpreter. No plea was entered.
The case was adjourned for a further hearing on March 16 at the crown court.
