A North Belfast man appeared in court today accused of molesting the mother of tragic schoolboy Noah Donohoe.
illiam Logue Millar, 44, faces another charge of persistent misuse of a public electronic communications network.
The charges are related to an alleged six-month campaign against Fiona Donohoe.
Their 14-year-old son Noah was found dead in a gully in north Belfast in June 2020, six days after he disappeared on a bike ride across the city to meet friends.
Ms Donohoe has since been pushing for answers about the circumstances surrounding his mysterious disappearance.
Northwood Parade’s Millar appeared in Belfast Magistrates’ Court to be charged with pursuing conduct amounting to harassment of Ms Donohoe and persistently using a communications network to cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless fear.
The alleged offenses were committed between June 19 and December 11 last year.
During the brief hearing, Millar spoke only to confirm that he understood the charges against him.
An investigating police officer said she could link him to both charges.
Defense attorney Keith Gamble told the court: “The papers have just been handed to me, there’s quite a wad of them and it would take me some time.”
District Judge Anne Marshall released his client on bail and adjourned the case for three weeks.
Millar is expected to express his position on the charges at that time.
