LATEST: Troubled rocker Courtney Love has been ordered to stand trial on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon after her alleged victim testified in a Los Angeles court.

Kristin King alleged the former HOLE singer threw a bottle and a lit candle at her after turning up at the home of the rocker's ex boyfriend JIM BARBER in the early hours.

And Superior Court Commissioner SANJAY KUMAR ruled "there is uncontroverted evidence that without provocation the defendant threw a bottle at the victim and chased her with a flashlight".

Love has been ordered to return to court to offer a plea on 10 November (04).

But speaking outside court yesterday (27OCT04), her lawyer HOWARD WEITZMAN said the performer wanted to move on with her life and put her recent court appearances behind her.

He explained, "She couldn't be in any better shape than she is now. Things are looking better and better for Courtney."
