TORONTO – A Toronto-area woman facing terror charges in an alleged attack at a Canadian Tire store will stand trial next year.

Rehab Dughmosh, 32, will face a judge and jury starting May 28, 2018 for what is expected to be a three-week trial.

Dughmosh is facing a total of 21 charges, including attempted murder of at least three people for the benefit of or in association with a terrorist group.

Police said she allegedly tried to attack employees at a Canadian Tire store in east Toronto with a golf club and a large knife in June.
Dughmosh previously underwent a psychological assessment and was deemed fit to stand trial.
