Twenty-seven year-old Malcolm Culley yesterday had an attempted murder charge against him withdrawn at the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions. However a fresh charge of inflicting grievous bodily harm was read to him.
Culley pleaded not guilty to the charge which stated that on May 18 last, at Cooper Street, Albouystown, he inflicted grievous bodily harm on Ronald Khan. He appeared before Principal Magistrate Judy Latchman in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts. His lawyer, George Thomas in application to secure bail for his client told the court that his client is the father of two and the sole breadwinner for his family.
Police Prosecutor Shawn Gonsalves had no objection to bail being granted to the defendant, hence he was released on $100,000 bail. He was also instructed to make his next court appearance on September 17.
Facts presented by the Prosecutor stated that on the day in question, Khan and Culley had a misunderstanding and Culley picked up a piece of wood and hit him several times about his body.
The victim fell to the ground in an unconscious state and was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital in a serious condition.
The court heard that Khan sustained punctured lungs, three broken ribs and several lacerations.
Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan had read the attempted murder charge to Culley on his first court appearance. She had remanded him to prison, citing that the victim was hospitalised in serious condition.
