A woman accused of attacking another woman with a hatchet in Sucker River has been released, pending a preliminary hearing this summer.


Jennifer Walker, 29, was in court this morning in La Ronge for a bail review.


Walker has been charged with aggravated assault, after allegedly striking a 41-year-old woman with a small hatchet this past Sunday.


The victim’s injuries are said to be non-life-threatening.


Walker elected to be tried by a Queen’s Bench judge and jury.


She has been released on an undertaking until her preliminary hearing on June 24.
