Belfast man cuts throat in front of police

A man accused of breaking into his ex-partner's home slashed his own throat in front of police, the High Court has heard.

Dean Nesbitt also made another attempt to stab himself in custody with a broken light bulb, prosecutors said.

The 31-year-old faces a series of charges including aggravated burglary with intent to commit grievous bodily harm and false imprisonment of the woman and her daughter.

Nesbitt, of Carn Rise, Newtownabbey, is also accused of criminal damage, threats to kill and earlier allegations of harassment and inflicting grievous bodily harm.

The charges relate to domestic disputes at the home of his former partner in the Glen Road area of west Belfast.

Nesbitt was granted bail by Mr Justice Weir to live at his mother's address on condition he has no contact with the alleged victim and does not enter the part of west Belfast where the woman lives.
