A woman has been found guilty of threatening and abusive behaviour towards her ex-partner.

Amanda McFarlane, 29, was found guilty of the offence when she appeared at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court on Thursday, May 30.

McFarlane, of John Galt Drive, caused her former partner fear and alarm by repeatedly shouting and swearing at him at an address in Fortacre Place on February 18.

The sheriff deferred sentence until later in the year.
