Hamilton Hill woman to fight manslaughter charge over boyfriend’s death

A 40-year-old woman accused of killing her boyfriend during a fight at their Perth home has indicated she will plead not guilty to manslaughter.

Police allege Tracey Elizabeth Diane Bridgewater and the man were involved in a fatal altercation at their residence in Hamilton Hill on September 23.

Bridgewater appeared in Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court on Wednesday, when her lawyer said the matter “will certainly go to trial”.

She had her bail extended after a friend paid her surety and didn’t speak with media when she emerged from court.

Bridgewater will appear in the same court on January 30 for a committal mention.
