Woman who tried to kill mother to be sentenced

A sentencing date has been confirmed for a Red Deer woman who used a pickup truck to try to kill her mother on the street last August.

Red Deer provincial court heard on Wednesday that Stacey Leigh Stewert will be sentenced on May 24 at 1:30 p.m.

The 33-year-old pleaded guilty on Dec. 28, 2012, to six of 11 charges arising from two incidents involving her mother, who lives in the Clearview Meadows subdivision.

On Aug. 8, Stewert was arrested after police received reports of a pedestrian being seriously injured in a collision involving a pickup truck.

Diane Stewert suffered broken ribs, a broken pelvis and damage to her kidneys and spleen in the impact, which pushed a building wall in by a few centimetres.

Earlier in the year, Stacey Stewert was arrested in Stettler following another incident in Red Deer.

Court heard that Diane Stewert was getting into her truck after refusing her daughter’s demand that she take her to a bank machine.

The daughter forced her mother out of the vehicle and drove away on May 2.

RCMP were able to use the vehicle’s GPS system to track it as it sped eastward on Hwy 12. Stacey Stewert was arrested in Stettler.
