A MAN has appeared in court today charged with attempting to murder a woman in the small Oxfordshire village where he lives. 

Tim Barry, aged 29, of Mill View, Cuxham, was charged today with one count of attempted murder and appeared before Oxford magistrates.

The charge relates to an incident on Sunday in which a 38-year-old woman suffered neck injuries inside a property in the same road.

She was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital and has since been discharged.

Barry was remanded in custody after today's hearing at Oxford Magistrates' Court and will appear at Oxford Crown Court on Thursday.
