Tributes have been paid to a teenage girl who tragically died following a farm accident. Abbie Nummy, 14, a pupil at Newry High School, sadly passed away in the incident.
Her funeral was held on Tuesday December 3 2019 in St May’s Parish Church, Newry.
Is there any suspect in Abbie Nummy murder case?
A Co Down man has denied the manslaughter of his teenage niece who died in a tragic farm accident three years ago.
Standing in the dock of Newry Crown Court, 48-year-old Derek Ian Nummy, of Altnaveigh Road, entered not guilty pleas to the two charges against him.
He is accused of killing Abbie Nummy on November 30, 2019, and allowing a kid under the age of 13 to drive, tow, or use another type of agricultural machinery while engaging in agricultural work on the same day.
The Bernish area farm was reached by air ambulance, but Abbie, a 14-year-old student at Newry High School, died there.
Following the arraignment, prosecuting KC Philip Mateer said there was a trial date set for 13 March next year, adding that the hearing “could stray into a second week”.
KC in Defense Judge Gordon Kerr KC released Nummy, from the Altnaveigh Road in Newry, on continued bail after John Kearney promised to check the witness list to see whether any of the 18 witnesses could be agreed.
