Duncan Alleyne, the reputed husband of Simone Fiedtkou, appeared before Principal Magistrate Melissa Robertson-Ogle, answering charges of attempted murder. It is alleged that on Sunday 15 June, 2008, Alleyne wounded Fiedtkou with intent to murder her.
Peter Hugh, the defence counsel, noted that their (Alleyne and Fiedtkou) common law relationship had resulted in four children. However, Alleyne, a dredge owner, has two other children with another woman. Hugh noted that Fiedtkou had bitten off a piece of the other woman’s ear before. Also, Fiedtkou had stabbed Alleyne four times in a pervious incident.
Denise Griffith, the prosecutor, highlighted that the common law relationship between Fiedtkou and Alleyne concluded in March when she (Fiedtkou) moved back into her parents’ house. The prosecutor maintained that throughout the common law relationship there have been several incidents of abuse.
Griffith went on to say that on the day of the wounding, Alleyne confronted and stabbed Fiedtkou eight times. Continuing, the prosecution noted that the medical report indicated that Fiedtkou may be permanently disabled.
Griffith requested that bail not be granted because the accused is likely to interfere with Fiedtkou again, and because if granted bail, Alleyne may not return to trial. The defence refuted this, saying that the accused has strong ties to the community and for this reason it is not likely that he would skip the trial.
Magistrate Robinson-Ogle did not grant Alleyne bail. Alleyne was remanded to prison, and the matter has been transferred to the Bartica Magistrate’s Court for July 9, 2008.
