The 17-year-old, who cannot be named because of his age, appeared at Armagh Courthouse on Friday, April 22.

He is charged with causing the death of 19-year-old Lesley-Ann by dangerous driving.

The former head girl of City of Armagh High School died in hospital a day after being knocked down while out for a run near her home on the Monaghan Road.

The defendant is also accused of failing to stop, failing to report an accident, and driving without a licence or insurance.

He was remanded in custody to Hydebank Prison and will appear in court again on Friday, May 13.
