After admitting to wounding his stepfather, a man was granted bail in the sum of $2000 when he appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant.
Kelvin Omar Price, 29, of Headley Land, Bank Hall, St Michael, pleaded guilty to unlawfully and maliciously wounding John Austin on September 20, 2018.
While not objecting to bail, prosecutor Sergeant Cameron Gibbons raised a concern as to whether the accused and the virtual complainant lived in the same house.
However, Price said while that used to be the case, his step-father had moved out following the incident.
The magistrate then ordered him to stay away from the complainant.
He will return to court on December 13, when the accused is expected to be present to address the issue of compensation.
