A nurse has denied causing death by dangerous driving after a young mother was killed following an argument.

Ophelia Oka-Koi, of Galdana Avenue, New Barnet, pleaded not guilty to causing the death of mother-of-two Christie McHugh in March 2012.

The 51-year-old nurse appeared at Harrow Crown Court for a plea and case management hearing this morning.

Mrs McHugh, 33, had been involved in a dispute with a woman before she was flung from the bonnet of a car in East Barnet Road, and later died of head injuries.

The trial date has been moved from June 2 to May 23.
