Miner remanded for stabbing man in eye –was jailed for previous stabbing incident


A MINER of Norton Street, Lodge, Georgetown, was on Monday remanded to prison by Magistrate Ann McLennan for allegedly stabbing a man in his eye. Levi Williams was not required to plead to the indictable charge that said that on June 17 at D’Urban Backlands, Georgetown, he inflicted grievous bodily harm to Jermaine Sampson, with intent to maim or disfigure.
However, Police Prosecutor Corporal Deniro Jones reported that Sampson was still in the hospital as he was stabbed twice, once in one of his eyes, and the other in another section of his body.
Bail was refused, and the matter was transferred before Magistrate Judy Latchman for July 17.
Williams was charged before with a similar offence and was jailed for 12 months by former Magistrate Geeta Chandan-Edmond after he admitted to stabbing another person with whom he had an argument.
