As she is facing a murder charge she must apply for bail in the Supreme Court.

Her lawyer David Abrey told the court he had collected a partial brief of evidence from police.

He said that included a significant amount of information even though it was not yet the complete brief of evidence.

The matter was adjourned until November 10.
