Ballymena Court

A COUPLE accused of child cruelty have had their cases further adjourned.

Christopher and Amanda Fulton (both 31), from Mosside, had the matter mentioned at Coleraine Magistrates Court, sitting in Ballymena, on Monday.

The couple are jointly charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent, two counts of child cruelty and a fourth charge of causing or allowing a child to suffer ‘serious physical harm’.

The charges relate to last November.

A prosecutor said he had no further details to give to the court regarding the case.

A defence lawyer said he had no updates on the case throughout the lockdown period.

District Judge Peter King said he would like to get an update as soon as possible “because of the nature of the allegations”.

He added: “This is a case I’m obviously very keen on following”.

The case was adjourned to September.
