Jury trial set for baby case

The bizarre case of an Osoyoos woman who allegedly barged into a neighbour's home with a knife asking to “see the baby” will go to a jury trial later this year.

Lawyers met in Penticton Monday to confirm dates for a five-day jury trial to start Oct. 28, 2019.

Sharon Forner, 45, is charged with assault with a weapon, break and enter, and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose stemming from an incident in Osoyoos last year that made international headlines.

Surveillance footage at an Osoyoos home shows a woman approach the front door wearing a wig and yellow rubber gloves, wielding a large kitchen knife. A mother alone at home with her seven-week-old child answered the door and the intruder declared she “just wanted to see the baby.”

The mother was able to defend herself and push the intruder outside, as shown on surveillance footage.

Forner was arrested by police the following day.

She remains behind bars after violating the bail conditions of her original release.
