Katrice facebook harassment case adjourned


THE case against a woman accused of using Facebook to harass the family of a girl who went missing more than 30 years ago was adjourned today due to her ill health.

Donna Wright, 33, was due to appear at Newton Aycliffe Magistrates’ Court accused of using the social networking site to send messages to the family of Katrice Lee.

The case was adjourned for two weeks after magistrates were told Wright, who has psychiatric issues, was “acutely ill”.

Bail conditions that Wright from Spennymoor, does not contact members of the Lee family or access a Facebook page set up for Katrice were extended.

Katrice went missing near the British Army base in Germany where her father Richard was serving in 1981 when she was two-years-old.

Mr Lee, of Hartlepool, attended the brief hearing.
