Cape Breton Post - - HOT ONLINE -

SYD­NEY — A trial date has been set for a Main-a-Dieu woman who al­legedly breached her re­lease con­di­tions at least four times in two months. Kath­leen Ann Spencer, 59, was ini­tially ar­rested May 4 and charged with ut­ter­ing a threat against her hus­band to smash the tele­vi­sion, rip the tele­phone out of the wall and burn down the house. Her hus­band told po­lice that his wife flipped out that day be­cause she awoke to find her­self out of cig­a­rettes and be­gan act­ing wildly. She was re­leased from cus­tody May 7 on con­di­tions that in­cluded hav­ing no con­tact with her hus­band or go­ing near their home in Main-a-Dieu. On May 20, Spencer was ar­rested for an al­leged breach by con­tact­ing her hus­band. She was re­leased again on the same con­di­tions. She sub­se­quently breached her con­di­tions three more times be­tween June 9 and June 13. In at­tempt­ing to se­cure re­lease for a fifth time, Spencer said she would live with an el­derly woman near Cat­alone, but Spencer didn’t know the woman’s last name and she didn’t have a phone. The judge re­jected Spencer’s sug­ges­tion and she re­mains on re­mand. She has pleaded not guilty to the charges. Her trial date is set for July 15.
