Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant today remanded a 39-year-old robbery accused to the Psychiatric Hospital after he admitted to hearing voices.
Galveston Athelston Burke, is accused of stealing a cellular phone and other items
worth $750 belonging to Tyrone Jones on February 15.
“Are you guilty or not guilty?” Cuffy-Sargeant asked Burke as he stood the dock.
“Ma’am are there any reporters in here . . . I can’t recall this . . . the voices does be talking in my head,” he responded just before a second charge was read of robbing Andrew Jones of $210 cash and an $8 bottle of rum on February 14.
The District ‘A’ Magistrate did not take any plea from the accused. Instead, she remanded him to the Black Rock, St Michael mental health facility for observation.
