A woman charged with the murder of motorcycle rider Trevor Moran in a January 2017 road crash has been refused bail and sent to the mental health section of the Sydney jail.
Vanessa Fraser, 47, did not appear at the bail hearing in Lismore Local Court in February as she was on her way to the Sydney jail. The case was mentioned again in court on Tuesday April 4 and adjourned until June 6.
Trevor, a 61-year-old Tweed Heads father of three, died after his motorcycle collided on January 6, 2017, with a white Ford Falcon station wagon driven by Ms Fraser, police will allege.
Trevor was treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics but died at the crash scene.
He was an active and well-liked member of the Tweed Heads Motor Cycle Enthusiast Club.
Police are still urging witnesses to the incident to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
It is unusual that a murder charge is being pursued over a road accident.
The matter is now “sub judice” which means it is before the courts and public discussion is not permitted.
However, in the interests of the motorcycle community, we will continue to follow this murder case.
