Wounding accused Wendell DaCosta Ward was granted $4,000 bail when he appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today.
The 58-year-old painter from Neils Tenantry, Belle Gully, St Michael is alleged to have maliciously wounded Margaret Ward on August 15.
He denied the allegation before Acting Magistrate Sandra Rawlins this afternoon. However, with no objection to bail and the magistrate accepting his surety, Ward was released and ordered to return to the No. 2 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on November 27.
In the meantime, however, he must stay away from the complainant and not venture onto her premises.
