Billington woman ‘death threat’: court case

Have your say

Aaron Ronald Hunt (26), of Harwood Street, Darwen, was sent to Preston Crown Court to stand trial when he appeared before Blackburn magistrates and pleaded not guilty to assaulting Ebony Bentham causing her actual bodily harm and making a threat to kill her.

Hunt was granted on condition that he does not enter Billington where Miss Bentham lives, but prosecutor Catherine Allan lodged an appeal against the decision and Hunt will remain in custody until the appeal is heard by a judge.
