The case of a woman accused of holding up 10 businesses in the St. John's metro area over the course of a few days is due back in court in late summer.

Lynn Ann Noseworthy wasn’t in Newfoundland Supreme Court Friday when her case was called. She was represented by lawyer Scott Hurley.

Hurley and Crown prosecutor Dana Sullivan agreed to have it recalled Sept. 8, at which time they will be ready to schedule dates for the trial.

Noseworthy, who is not in custody, was arrested Nov. 2, 2012. Between Oct. 31 and the day of her arrest, Noseworthy is suspected of robbing or trying to rob 10 businesses in St. John's and Mount Pearl. Police say she left some of those businesses with stolen cash.

The businesses include gas stations, convenience stores and pizzerias.

The 36-year-old, who has no criminal record, has pleaded not guilty to 20 charges, six counts each of robbery, four counts of attempted robbery, plus 10 counts of concealing her identity while committing a crime.

There have been indications from lawyers that medical evidence will likely play a key role in the trial.
