[www.inewsguyana.com] – A 31-year-old man charged with threatening to kill his mother and burn her house was remanded to prison by Magistrate Annette Singh on Friday, February 27.
Otis Daniels initially pleaded guilty to the charge which alleged that on February 25, at Tucville, Georgetown he made use of threatening language to Claudette Tyrell, where a breach of the peace maybe occasioned.
The Court heard that the defendant is in the habit of threatening his mother; on the day in question, he ventured to his mother’s place of work, at Tucville Secondary, where he threatened to kill her and burn her house down.
Daniels told the Court that he did not threaten the woman and only pleaded guilty to the offence because he was told that it was the easiest way to get rid of the matter. A not guilty plea was then entered.
Police Prosecutor Adduni Innis opposed bail on the grounds that the unrepresented man does not have a fix place of abode and if granted bail he may tamper with the witness.
He was remanded to prison and the matter was put off to March 16 for trial.
