A woman charged with attempted murder over a stabbing in Nelson has been remanded to a mental health unit for assessment.

A man died of stab wounds and a woman was seriously injured in the attack on 3 March.

The accused, who is in her 50s and cannot be named, was deemed sufficiently unwell to appear in the Nelson District Court on Monday.

A psychiatric evaluation will be carried out to assess her fitness to plead.
