A woman jailed for the infamous Ballymena ‘body in the bin’ case this week denied more offences.

Defence solicitor Stewart Ballantine told District Judge Alan White that Paula Wilson had been in his office this morning but as today is her 28th birthday, “I didn’t intend to detain her any longer.”

He told Ballymena Magistrates Court that Wilson, from Tobar Street in Cullybackey, “intends to plead not guilty” to each of the four charges against her.

Wilson faces charges of using a car when it was in a dangerous condition, failing to provide a specimen of breath to police, attempting to cause criminal damage to a police car and assaulting a police officer, all alleged to have been committed on the Grove Road in the town on 7 November this year.

DJ White adjourned the case to 21 January to fix a date for Wilson’s trial.

In 2015, Wilson was handed a two year sentence after she admitted aiding and abetting the false imprisonment of Adam Robinson who was stripped naked and sealed in a wheelie bin in September 2013.

Prior to Mr Robinson being discovered and rescued from the bin by a man walking his dog in Sentry Hill, he had been partying with Wilson, her then boyfriend Terry Lau in his flat in Dunclug and 33-year old Roddy Patterson from Glendun Drive.

Lau and Patterson were handed three and a half year sentences after they pleaded guilty to causing actual bodily harm and false imprisonment.
