A 29-year-old woman from Red Lodge accused of conspiracy to commit murder has been told by a judge that she can be granted bail.

Rebecca Deferia, of Carnation Way, is charged in connection with an incident on Tuesday August 4 when a man was shot in the stomach at an address in Forum Court, Bury St Edmunds.

A man in his thirties was successfully treated in hospital for his injuries.

Following submissions from her legal team at Ipswich Crown Court today, Judge David Goodin said that Deferia can be released on bail once a £250,000 security has been paid.

Bail has been granted on condition that Deferia has no contact with prosecution witnesses or others charged in connection with the same alleged offence.

She appeared today at Ipswich Crown Court for a preliminary hearing.

Judge Goodin said that Deferia would have to return to court within the next 28 days for a plea and case management hearing.

Five men have already been charged with conspiracy to commit murder in relation to the same incident.

The men, who have all pleaded not guilty and are due to go on trial in April, are Simon Webber, 31, of Sydenham Close, Bridgwater, Somerset, Frank Warren, 51, of Victoria Road, Dorchester, Andrew Seaton,40, of Frome View, Maiden Newton, Dorchester, Paul Baker, 35, of Neils View, Maiden Newton, Dorchester, and Colin Deferia, 59, of Battisford Road, Barking.

A 60-year-old woman, arrested on August 5 2015 and bailed, has now had her bail cancelled and has been told she will face no further police action.
