A mum-of-two charged with the attempted murder of her children’s father has been remanded in custody after contacting him through Facebook.

Tiffany Cobb, 24, of Norwich Road, Wisbech, is accused of attempting to kill her partner Jagit Singh on July 20.

She was given bail on August 11 with conditions including not to contact Mr Singh, but King’s Lynn magistrates heard that she called his mobile and sent him a message on Facebook on September 1.

Cobb appeared before the court in custody on Thursday and denied breaching her bail conditions, claiming she couldn’t have sent the messages as she was at the Nacro adult education centre in Wisbech at the time.

She also denied having access to a Facebook account. But magistrates found her guilty of the breach.

Susanna Chowdhury, prosecuting, said the Facebook message was sent at 1.33pm, saying “Answer my calls...you better not come to court. I wish you’d die.”

Cobb was refused bail and remanded in custody until her next appearance at Kingston Crown Court, London, where she is due to enter a plea to the attempted murder charge in due course.

She is accused of trying to murder Mr Singh, who she had been in a relationship with for five years.
