Malcolm Culley

Twenty-seven-year-old Malcolm Culley, of Cooper Street, Albouystown, Georgetown, was not required to plead when the charge was read to him by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan on his first appearance.

The court heard that on May 18, 2018, at Albouystown with intent to commit murder, Culley wounded Rawle Khan.

The court was also informed that the injured man was at the time still hospitalized at the Georgetown Public Hospital suffering from a punctured lung, three broken ribs and had several lacerations about his body.

In a bail application, Culley’s Attorney, George Thomas, told the court that his client, a father of one, was soon to be a parent again.

He highlighted that Culley had no previous matters in the courts and did not pose a flight risk.

However, the man was granted bail under conditions that he makes no contact with the V.C  and that he stays 50 feet away from the victim. He was also ordered to lodge his travel documents.

The case will continue on August 2.
