Williams of Golden Grove Housing Scheme, East Bank Demerara was however, granted bail of $700,000 after his then attorney Savannah Brummel made a successful bail application.

According to reports, Williams was proceeding north along the Houston Public Road when he allegedly struck the victim who was attempting to cross the highway.

The elderly woman was reportedly pitched into the air and landed a short distance away. She was picked up and taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital where she succumbed to her injuries.

After the ruling by the magistrate on Friday, Williams was in all smiles as he left the courtroom.
