A BENCH warrant has been issued for the arrest of a Limerick city woman who is accused of threatening to kill a another woman in Murroe over a year ago.

A BENCH warrant has been issued for the arrest of a Limerick city woman who is accused of threatening to kill a another woman in Murroe over a year ago.

Annabel Dundon, 22, of Hyde Road, Ballinacurra Weston is charged under the Non Fatal Offences Against the Person Act with making the threat against a mother-of-three on April 9, 2011.

It is alleged the threat was made by Ms Dundon outside a house in the Rosfearna Estate, where the alleged victim was living at the time.

The case was listed for trial at Limerick Circuit Court last month but was adjourned until this week when Ms Dundon failed to attend court.

When the case was called again on Tuesday, Michael Collins BL, prosecuting, applied to the court for a bench warrant.

Shane O’Callaghan BL said he did not have instructions from his client as he had no contact with her since the case was last mentioned.

Noting the time and date and the fact that Ms Dundon was not present in court, Judge Carroll Moran granted the application for a bench warrant.
