A 19-year-old Old Montrose resident will on March 7 be the subject of a preliminary inquiry into the wounding of a fellow villager, whose neck was slashed on June 20, 2021 — Father’s Day.
On Monday, Lydon Bynoe, who is unemployed, appeared before the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court charged with wounding Roger Brazil, a 52-year-old tailor of the same address, by cutting him on his throat, left thumb, left index and left middle finger with a cutlass, with the intent to do so.
He was not required to plead to the indictable charge and Senior Magistrate Rickie Burnett granted EC$6,000 bail and ordered Bynoe to have no contact with Brazil.
Bynoe is to report to the Central Police Station on Mondays between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. and has to surrender his travel documents to the court.
The matter was adjourned and transferred to the Serious Offences court for today (Tuesday).
During today’s hearing, Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne set the date for the preliminary hearing.
