A WOMAN was allowed to spend Christmas at home despite appearing in court last week charged with manslaughter.
Rebecca Rivers, from Locking, appeared in court on December 20 accused of being responsible for the death of Peter Edwards.
Mr Edwards was assaulted in Weston on November 5. He was taken to hospital and died at the Bristol Royal Infirmary, five days after he was injured.
Rivers, aged 21, was charged with one count of manslaughter on December 19 by police and she stayed in custody overnight, before appearing at Bristol Magistrates Court the following day.
She was granted conditional bail by magistrates but must stay every night at her Chamberlain Road address and was ordered not to contact people connected with the case.
