A teenager accused of causing the death of a young Armagh woman in an alleged hit-and-run collision has had his case adjourned until next month.

The 17-year-old, who cannot be named because of his age, appeared at Armagh Youth Court on Friday.

He is charged with causing the death by dangerous driving of Lesley-Ann McCarragher on April 9 this year.

He is also charged with failing to stop, remain or report an accident and having no driving licence or insurance.

The teenager was remanded in custody until his next appearance, which will be via videolink at Armagh Magistrates Court on June 7.

Lesley-Ann, a former head girl of City of Armagh High School, was out running on the Monaghan Road last month when she was involved in the collision.
