A woman charged with the murder of her husband in St Albans a fortnight ago has been refused bail, and the judge has suppressed his reasons for the refusal.

Defence counsel for Lucille Sarah Scollay, 44, Pip Hall applied for her release on bail at her second appearance in the Christchurch District Court today.

He wanted the bail to be granted for her remand, but Judge John Strettell made his ruling and then suppressed publication of the reasons he set out in court.

Scollay, who is charged with the murder of Guy Christian Scollay, 48, at their Edgeware Rd house on February 10, will remain in custody for the remand to March 18.

No plea has been entered.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
