We have charged a woman with attempted murder following a report that a woman had ingested harmful levels of medication.
We were called to a report that a woman in her 80s and a woman in her 50s were in need of assistance at a house in Dudley Road, Grantham, just after 8am on 19 December.
Both received treatment at the scene from paramedics before being taken to hospital. The women are known to each other and we are not looking to speak with anyone else in connection with this incident.
Officers, including specialist search teams and forensically-trained police staff, remained at the scene for several days conducing initial enquiries.
Following a swift and thorough investigation, 54-year-old Catriona Hawkins, of Dudley Road, Grantham has now been charged with attempted murder.
She was charged last night and remanded into custody to appear at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court today.
