Qld Boxing Day stabbing charges upgraded

Charges laid against a 15-year-old girl who allegedly stabbed a middle-aged Queensland couple in their bed on Boxing Day have been upgraded to attempted murder.

The teenager is accused of attacking the pair, aged 44 and 46, in the early hours of Monday in Rockhampton, leaving the woman fighting for life in Rockhampton Base Hospital and the man in a stable condition.

The girl was initially charged with grievous bodily harm and wounding but on Wednesday police said her charges had been upgraded to attempted murder.
