The prosecution told the court that the Short family had been involved in along standing feud with members of another local family, the Atkinsons.
The families had reached a state of uneasy peace following their lengthy dispute. However on May 13 2012 an incident began between Theresa Atkinson, the Atkinson family matriarch, and Raymond Young, a member of the Short family.
Theresa Atkinson was drunk and lashed out with a bottle striking Young. It led to him "back handing" Theresa Atkinson. She responded by shouting "I'm gonna get you done by my sons". She said: "You just wait here, you're dead."
