Man still critical, farmer further remanded


A 51-ONE-YEAR-OLD Port Kaituma farmer was on Wednesday remanded to prison by City Magistrate Judy Latchman after his appearance before her charged with intent to commit murder.

Royston Jones was not required to plea to the charge which alleged that on November 28 at Main Road, Port Kaituma he caused grievous bodily harm to Andel Edwards, with intent to commit murder.

Police Prosecutor Shawn Gonzales did not state all the facts, but told the court that Edward was still hospitalized with the doctor listing his condition as critical.

Magistrate Latchman refused the farmer bail and remanded him until December 13, when he will make an appearance before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan.
