(Newswatch Group/Bill Kingston, File)

CORNWALL – A Cornwall woman has been found not guilty of attempted murder in an attack on a city cab driver just over two years ago.

Linda Caesor, 50, was facing charges of attempted murder, possession of a dangerous weapon and making threats.

She was found guilty on a lesser charge of assault with a weapon, as well as the counts of possession of a dangerous weapon and threats.

The verdict was delivered Monday following a trial in early February.

Court heard how Caesor, who was extremely drunk, received bad news about a family member and later lashed out at the cabbie and tried to cut his throat with a knife. The driver wasn’t seriously injured.

Judge Rick Leroy found the Crown did not prove beyond a reasonable doubt the Caesor had intended to murder the cab driver in October 2018, according to the Standard-Freeholder.

She will be back in court June 18 for sentencing.
