A 43 year old man is now charged with Attempted Murder and Aggravated Assault in connection with this week's violent domestic dispute at a South James Street house.
Police aren't releasing the man's name in order to protect the identities of the victims, a 29 year old mother and her 7 year old daughter. Emergency officials say both of them suffered stab wounds.
The accused has been identified as being an ex-husband of the woman. He was arrested at the house and was treated in hospital with self-inflicted injuries.
