Jailed male trio to testify against woman

THREE men jailed over two armed home invasions at Robinvale last year will be cross-examined in the case against a woman who is now accused of taking part in one of the chilling raids.

Narelle Leigh Carter, of Albury-Wodonga, will face a two-day committal hearing in August to determine whether she stands trial over the alleged attack on the Kenneth Road property on April 17 last year.

Carter was charged after three men who have already been jailed over the home invasions implicated her when their matters were before the County Court.

Albury-Wodonga trio Mac Sikoulabout, Stephen John White and Kia Toumngeun were sentenced to minimum jail terms of eight, 6½ and 8½ years respectively by Judge Michael Bourke last month.

During their plea hearings, the men agreed under oath to give evidence against Carter and another co-accused.

Magistrate Andrew Capell said the three jailed men and a police informant could be cross-examined at the August committal hearing.

Carter, who remains in custody and appeared by video link on Tuesday, did not apply for bail.

She will re-appear in court on May 1 on separate matters, to which she has indicated she would plead guilty.
