A WOMAN denies making a threat to kill a woman on New Year’s Day.

Carmel McAteer (32), of Sperrin Road, Limavady, is charged in relation to January 1, 2020.

The case is due to be contested in April, Coleraine Magistrates Court heard on February 17.

At a previous court a judge agreed to vary the defendant’s bail conditions so she could attend the Roe Valley Residents’ Association building in Limavady.

The earlier court heard it was alleged a comment made by the defendant was heard by a police officer.

The defendant’s lawyer told that court that McAteer volunteers three days a week at the Residents’ Association based on Keady Way but her bail conditions had included a ban on her being at Keady Way.

The police officer said an alleged incident happened just doors away from the Association building in Keady Way and had voiced concerns that the alleged victim could attend the centre.

Outlining the background, the officer said police had received a 999 call to Keady Way on January 1 this year following reports that a number of people were kicking a front door.

As police went to arrest a man, McAteer was heard shouting: “I’m going to kill her,” the court heard, and police believed that was a reference to a woman at Keady Way.

At court in January a judge agreed to vary McAteer’s bail conditions to allow her to carry out voluntary work on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays but she must enter the Residents’ Association premises from Sperrin Road and not be outside on Keady Way.
