A lawyer who denied assault and wounding a woman was faced with allegations of a further six similar offences yesterday.

Magistrates' Court heard that the prosecution wanted to proceed with the six older charges against Kamal Worrell, 39.

The charges were dropped in January after alleged victim Chavelle Dillon withdrew them.

Mr Worrell, from Warwick, was charged on August 28 with separate charges of assaulting and wounding Ms Dillon.

It was alleged the offences took place in Warwick on June 1.

Mr Worrell denies the charges.

The six other alleged offences of assault were said in court to have happened in Warwick on November 14 last year.

Magistrate Maxanne Anderson adjourned the case until November 7 for a hearing on whether the six charges from last November should be combined with the offences alleged to have happened in June.
