A man facing several charges, including possession of a firearm was remanded to HMP Dodds until the New Year.
When he appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today Dario Akeem Ifill, 27, of London Road, Brittons Hill, St Michael, was remanded by Magistrate Douglas Frederick.
Ifill was not required to plead to the charges that on November 23, 2018, he caused serious bodily harm to Leon Lawrence with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him; that he used a firearm while committing the act of serious bodily harm and that he damaged a motor car belonging to First Class Car Rentals.
He also faces a charge that together with five persons he used unlawful violence towards Gregory Shepherd on August 18, 2018.
Prosecutor Station Sergeant Carrison Henry objected to bail because of the seriousness of the offences and that a firearm allegedly used had not yet been recovered. He said one person had been injured and that the incident stemmed from an ongoing feud.
Henry said he feared if Ifill were granted bail the fracas would continue.
The accused told the magistrate he would make a bail application on his next court date.
He will return to court on January 17, 2019.
