A Christ Church businessman charged in connection with the incident that left another man with severe injuries to his hand, has been remanded to Her Majesty’s Prisons at Dodds, St Philip for 28 days and will return to court on February 26.
Corie O’Neil Holder, 39, of 179 Regency Park, Christ Church, appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court before Acting Magistrate Anika Jackson and was not allowed to plead to the indictable charge of unlawfully and maliciously wounding Alban Mottley of Newbury, St George, on January 15, 2019, with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him. The incident is alleged to have taken place at Station Hill, St Michael.
Prosecutor, PC Kenmore Phillips had asked the court not to grant bail because of the seriousness of the offence and the complainant was at the hospital awaiting surgery.
His counsel, attorney-at-law, Kendrid Sargeant had described him as a fit candidate, but the acting magistrate remanded the businessman because of the medical report and after checking his antecedents.
