As the charges were read, it was heard that the defendant was alleged to have unlawfully and maliciously wounded a male on February 17, of this year.

Appearing via videolink from her solicitor’s office, Mongan made no objection to the holding of a preliminary enquiry.

Prosecution submitted that based on the papers before the court there was a prima facie case to answer.

Defence solicitor John Rocks made no contrary submissions.

District Judge Eamonn King said that he was satisfied there was a prima facie case to answer.

The defendant was released on continuing bail to appear before Newry Crown Court on December 3 for arraignment.
