The Prosecution Solicitor gave his arguments for refusing Tracy Barlow's application for bail before her trial for the murder of Charlie Stubbs. The application was heard at Weatherfield Magistrates Court in January 2007.

After also hearing arguments to grant bail from Derek Anderson for the defence, the presiding Judge Fortune was minded to err on the side of caution and refuse the application. Tracy was remanded in custody until her trial at Weatherfield Courts of Justice.
