A TWENTY-year-old miner was yesterday granted $15,000 bail by Magistrate Ann McLennan on a charge of threatening behaviour.
Quincy Marshal pleaded not guilty to the charge, which alleged that on December 2 at James Street, Albouystown, he behaved in a threatening manner towards Giselle Francis,the virtual complainant(VC).
According to reports, on the day in question the defendant and Francis had an argument. When she tried to leave the house, he picked up a hammer and threw it at the door. He then reportedly told Francis that he had a gun to kill her and used a number of expletives to her.
Police Prosecutor Dinero Jones did not object to bail. The father of two was bonded to keep peace pending the outcome of the matter and will make his next court appearance before Magistrate Geeta Chandan-Edmond December 19.
