A 29-year-old local man is to stand trial charged with offences linked to an alleged incident at a house in the Bogside area in 2011.

Kevin Martin Ward from Sherrifs Glen pleaded not guilty at his arraignment to a charge of threatening to kill a woman and assaulting her husband.

He also denied a further charge of assaulting the couple's daughter.

The offences are alleged to have occurred in the couple's family home at Laburnum Terrace on 27 November 2011.

There was no bail application and the defendant was remanded in continuing custody until his trial starts on 12 November at Londonderry Crown Court.
