A 27-year-old man, who allegedly stabbed his brother, was granted $10,000 bail with strict conditions when he appeared in the Oistins Magistrates’ Court today.
Tremaine Renaldo Nathaniel Gill, of Wilson Village, Lodge Road, Christ Church, was not required to plead to the charge that he wounded Damian Gill on April 1 with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him or to do some serious bodily harm to him.
Station Sergeant Rudolph Burnett objected to bail for the accused on the grounds that he had charges pending before the court and the complainant was still hospitalized at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
However, Gill’s attorney Andrew Clarke told Magistrate Elwood Watts that his client was self-employed and was complying with all the conditions previously imposed as it relates to other court matters. The lawyer said based on his information the injured brother was up and walking. He also submitted that his client was willing to make other living arrangements as the two resided in the same household.
Watts ruled in favour of the defence and granted Gill bail on condition that he reports to the Oistins Police Station every Wednesday before 9 a.m. with valid identification. The accused must also be off the streets from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily and must reside other than with his brother.
Gill returns to court on May 8.
