A Linden, Blueberry Hill, Wismar resident was on Tuesday before the Chief Magistrate, Ann McLennan charged with the attempted murder of his cousin.
Collis Isaacs, 45, and a father of five children was not allowed to plead to the indictable charge brought against him.
It is being alleged that he wounded Troy Semple on July 25, at Kumung Kumung Backdam, Puruni, with the intent of committing murder.
According to the facts of the matter, the duo had an argument on the day in question when the Virtual Complainant (VC) left and returned with a cutlass.
A fight ensued but the defendant was able to overpower the VC, allegedly using the said cutlass to chop him to his body.
Police Prosecutor, Gordon Mansfield revealed that, the VC is still hospitalised but out of danger and as such, he had no objections to bail being granted.
Bail was granted in the sum of $75,000 and Isaacs will reappear in Court on August 16.
