Ron Cole, 40, the Linden driver charged for causing the death of Police Constable Nikosi Lefluer, reappeared in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts on Friday after being remanded to prison earlier in April.
The father of six was represented by Attorney Leslyn Charles, who made a bail application for him. Charles requested that bail be granted at a reasonable sum, while stating her client has been incarcerated since April 18.
One week was requested by Police Prosecutor Neville Jeffers for the case statements and post mortem reports, which are both still outstanding and as such he had no objections to bail.
Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan granted bail in the sum of $500,000 and ordered Cole to report to the McKenzie Police station weekly.
Cole pleaded not guilty to the charge, which read that on April 11, at Eccles Public Road, East Bank Demerara, he drove his car, GRR 9355, in a manner dangerous to the public thereby causing the death of Police Constable Nikosi Lefluer.
The deceased was at the time directing traffic when he was struck down by Cole. The matter was adjourned to May 18.
