Two brothers have been charged with attempted murder in relation to the incident last Wednesday in which a conductor reportedly received chop wounds to the neck and hand.

Minibus conductor, Kevin Chance, and his younger brother, Kamara Chance, a joiner, both of Campden Park, will return to court on Friday for a bail hearing.

They appeared before Chief Magistrate, Sonia Young, at the Serious Court on Friday, where the charges were read to them.

The prosecution objected to bail, telling the court that doctors list the virtual complainant, Omar Providence, a minibus conductor of Redemption Sharpes, as in a “serious” condition.

It is alleged that a cutlass was used in the incident, the prosecution further said, adding that Providence received a chop wound to the neck and his fingers were almost severed.

They said he had undergone surgery on Thursday and further examinations had been scheduled.

They asked the court for one week to allow for an update on Providence’s condition.

But defence attorney, Grant Connell told the court that while he had not seen the medical report, he was guided that Providence was still in hospital and had some “cuts” to the neck and fingers.

“A little more than that, Mr. Connell,” the magistrate however said.

Connell further noted that his clients are employed but the magistrate adjourned for a June 28 bail hearing, saying that she would reconsider bail earlier if the prosecution is ready.
