A WOMAN will stand trial later this month charged with attacking child killer Theresa Riggi with a razor.

Angela Hamilton, 40, is accused of repeatedly slashing Riggi in the face, leaving her permanently scarred.

Riggi, 49, killed her three children, eight-year-old twins Austin and Gianluca, and their sister Cecilia, aged five, in August 2010, stabbing each of them eight times.

Falkirk Sheriff Court heard yesterday that Hamilton allegedly repeatedly struck Riggi in the face and head with the blade, during the alleged attack in Riggi’s cell, at Cornton Vale Prison on 19 November.
