Gemma Procter, 23, appeared via video link flanked by a carer from a facility in Northamptonshire wearing a grey, long-sleeved top and black trousers.

The defendant spoke only to confirm her name and sat silently throughout the short 10-minute hearing.

There was no plea entered by the defendant.

A trial date has been fixed for April 16, a week after the custody time limit expires.
