Court told of threat to cut woman's throat

A 22-year-old man has appeared at Londonderry Magistrates' Court charged with threatening to slit his girlfriend's throat.

Kyle Rowan, from Kingslane, Ballykelly, denies making the threat in January this year.

Refusing bail, the district judge said the defendant had an "appalling record" and added he was concerned that if he was released he would re-offend.

Mr Rowan was remanded to appear in court again next month.
