Bail granted for Moree Man Mitchell Lang

A MOREE man charged with contravening an AVO and throwing petrol on a woman in a domestic dispute has been granted conditional bail.

Mitchell Lee Lang appeared in Moree Local Court on Wednesday morning charged with five offences stemming from an alleged dispute at a home in East Moree on January 6.

The 45-year-old went to the home about 7am to fix a bike and became aggressive, before a verbal argument broke out with the alleged victim.

Police will allege Lang then grabbed a nearby jerry can and threw petrol over the woman before stating “I’m going to light you up”, whilst holding a cigarette lighter in his hand.

According to police, Lang then left the scene and officers were called to the scene a short time later.

Police have confirmed the woman wasn’t injured in the incident.

Detectives will allege an apprehended violence application was only finalised in court two days prior to the incident to protect the victim before Lang breached the court order.

Following investigations, Lang was arrested a day after the incident at a home and taken to Moree Police Station where he was questioned by investigators.

He was charged with domestic violence related offences including throw or lay down explosive with intent to maim or cause grievous bodily harm with intent – a charge which carries up to 25 years in prison if convicted.

He also faces offences of contravening an AVO, intimidation, common assault and goods in custody.

The 45-year-old was refused bail by police but was granted conditional bail by the court a day later.

Lang returned to court where Magistrate Darryl Pearce ordered investigators to compile a brief of evidence into the case.

The case has been adjourned to March and Lang remains on bail.
