A mother who allegedly ran over and killed her girlfriend while driving drunk in Broome on Sunday night has broken down in tears in court facing what a magistrate described as “unique manslaughter”. Tammy Lorimer, 43, held her head in her hands in Broome Magistrates Court on Tuesday afternoon as Magistrate Stephen Sharratt read out the accusation that, after a heavy afternoon of drinking, she got in her car then reversed over and killed her lover, Doreen-Joan Lindsay, 35. The court was told on Sunday, November 14 between 5pm and 5.30pm, Ms Lorimer was allegedly drinking heavily at her home in Cable Beach with Ms Lindsay, as well as three teenage children. It was alleged Ms Lorimer decided she would drive to the local shops and chose to leave Ms Lindsay at the address, as she was “visually intoxicated”. The court was told Ms Lorimer allegedly walked to her vehicle, sat in the driver’s seat and began to reverse down the driveway, at which time Ms Lindsay walked onto the driveway into the path of the vehicle. It was alleged Ms Lorimer did not notice the victim and hit Ms Lindsay with her vehicle, then dragged the victim’s body under the car until it came to her attention. The court was told Ms Lorimer jumped out of the car when she noticed what had happened and attended to Ms Lindsay who had suffered “significant injuries”. An ambulance was called to the scene and police later attended, with Ms Lorimer undergoing a breath analysis which showed a blood alcohol content reading of 0.215 per cent, four times the legal limit. It was alleged one of the teenagers present was Ms Lorimer’s 16-year-old son. The court was told Ms Lorimer had “significant ties” to the community, with several family members and friends showing their support at her court hearing. The police prosecutor said police did not oppose bail as long as strict conditions were put in place. Mr Sharratt described the case as a “unique manslaughter” as there was no physical act of violence between the couple in the lead up to the offence. Bail was granted under the condition Ms Lorimer report to the Broome Police Station on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Other conditions required Ms Lorimer not to drive, to submit to a breath analysis when requested by a member of WA Police and not to display a BAC reading of more than 0.05 per cent. Surety was requested for $10,000 but ended up being settled at $5000. Ms Lorimer’s Facebook profile reveals she was in a relationship with Ms Lindsay, a well-known local, since at least July 2 this year. Both women were active members of Broome’s LGBTQI+ and football communities, with Ms Lorimer regularly taking to social media to share pro-equality, pro-vaccination and Black Lives Matter messages. It is not Ms Lorimer’s first offence — she appeared in Broome Magistrates Court on September 20 charged with driving a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol, which saw her lose her license for a period of 42 months. Magistrate Sharratt said Ms Lorimer had no criminal record but had a “great number of road traffic offences” to her name. “I think I’ll leave it there, she is looking quite stressed out,” he said. With strict bail conditions to remain in place until her next hearing, Ms Lorimer is due to appear in Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court on January 19, 2022.
