For trial on perverting the course of justice


A Lurgan woman has been returned for trial to Craigavon Crown Court on a charge of perverting the course of justice which arises out of the murder of prison officer David Black on the M1 motorway.

Fiona McFadden (29), whose address was given as Killough Gardens, Lurgan, appeared last Friday at a preliminary enquiry at Craigavon courthouse.

The charge against her alleges that on November 3, 2012, with intent to pervert the course of justice she informed police officers investigating the murder of David Black that Sean McVeigh had been in her company at her home address between the hours of 4pm and 9.30pm on October 31, 2012.

She was remanded on bail to appear for 
arraignment at Craigavon Crown Court on November 13.
