A detective has told the court that he lied in a statement he made to support a colleague.
This happened yesterday when the Preliminary Inquiry (PI) continued into the attempted murder charge that has been filed against businesswoman Maryann Daby, who is accused of attempting to kill a police officer.
Detective Constable John Holder told the courtroom of Senior Magistrate Leron Daly that he lied in his statement to support his colleague’s allegation.
Maryann Daby, 25, of 127 D’Aguiar Park, Houston, Georgetown, is currently out on $750,000 High Court bail.
She is accused of pointing a loaded gun at a police officer’s head and pulling the trigger, in an attempt to kill him.
Detective Constable Holder then continued giving his testimony detailing his role in the investigation.
Holder told the court that he is presently attached to Alberttown Police Station.
The PI into the matter will continue on September 19 when the attorney representing the defendant is expected to cross examine the witness.
Daby was not required to plead to the charge which alleged that on May 13, at Albert Street, Thomas Lands, Georgetown, with intent to commit murder, she attempted to discharge a loaded firearm at Police Constable Christopher Kissoon.
According to reports, on the day in question Daby and her friends were at the Georgetown Motor Racing and Sports Club. Constable Kissoon, who was off-duty and was at the Club at the time, reportedly heard what appeared to be gunshots.
While checking for the source of the gunfire, he reportedly saw Daby firing rounds into the air. He said that he confronted her.
Daby then allegedly pointed a firearm to the officer’s head and pulled the trigger.
Daby is also charged for having an unlicensed pistol along with six live rounds.
The attempted murder charge and the unlawful possession of arms and ammunition charges arise from the same circumstances.
It is alleged that on May 13, last at Albert Street, Thomas Lands, Georgetown, she had a .32 pistol in her possession when she was not the holder of a firearm license enforced at the time.
It was further alleged that on the same day, she had six live rounds of .32 ammunition in her possession, when she was not the holder of a firearm license enforced at the time.
She denied the charges after they were read to her. She is being represented by Attorney-at-Law Mark Waldron.
