A woman from St John’s Wood has been charged with attempting to murder her boyfriend by stabbing him at their home.

Tanya Byrne, 35, of Belgrave Gardens, is claimed to have knifed Lee Tyler on July 1 this year.

Last week she appeared at Southwark Crown Court via videolink from HMP Bornzefield where she is on remand.

She is facing a single charge of attempted murder following the alleged attack.

Prosecutor Angus Bunyan said: “The attempted murder relates to injuries sustained by her partner which are extremely serious potentially and seem to have been inflicted by a knife.
