A COMRIE woman ended up in court after biting her partner during an argument when she was pregnant.

In the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court was Karen Morris, 28, of Shepherdlands Grove.

She admitted that on April 1, at an address in Townhill Road, Dunfermline, she assaulted her partner by biting him to his injury.

On April 4, at the same address, she behaved in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting and swearing.

Depute fiscal Azrah Yousaf said: “The accused was 16-weeks' pregnant at the time. There was an argument between the two of them and she wanted to leave. He stood in front of her and she bit him on the chest.”

Police were not contacted until after another row between them three days later when Morris was shouting and swearing.

Defence solicitor Stephen Morrison said the relationship had started online and ended after the incident on April 4.

He added that his client had given birth in September and she was now back living with her parents.

Sheriff Charles MacNair deferred sentenced until February 7 for Morris to be of good behaviour.
