An arrest warrant was issued last Thursday at Banbridge Magistrates Court for a 20-year-old man who did not turn up for sentencing.

Daniel McConville, Dingwell Park, Lurgan, faces two charges. He has been convicted of making a threat to a female to kill her on May 14 last year and disorderly behaviour at Newry courthouse on the same date. Sentencing had been adjourned so that a pre-sentence report could be obtained.

The court heard he had not turned up for his appointment with probation. A court official called the defendant and confirmed that there was no response.
