A Horsham man and two other men have appeared in Hove Crown Court this week, charged with conspiracy to murder a woman.
Bruce Killick, 63, of Emms Lane, Brooks Green, Horsham, appeared alongside Karl Cruise, 59, a British national living in Brittany, France, and Graham Martin, 39, of no fixed abode.
The three are charged with conspiracy to murder Susan Killick, 61, and conspiracy to cause her grievous bodily harm.
The prosecutors allege that Mrs Killick was attacked at an address in Emms Lane, Brooks Green, Horsham on Tuesday February 18.
All three defendants deny the charges. The trial continues.
