[www.inewsguyana.com] – A 43-year-old shopkeeper was on Tuesday, June 30, placed on $150,000 bail by Magistrate Ann McLennan after he appeared in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court charged with wounding another man.
Steven Wilson Spencer of Pere Street Kitty, Georgetown, pleaded not guilty to the charge which alleged that on June 18 at Essequibo, he unlawfully and maliciously wounded Lloyd Berth.
The Police Prosecution revealed that Spencer and Berth had an argument after which he armed himself with a cutlass and chopped the victim.
Police prosecutor Dinero Jones did not object to Spencer’s pre-trial liberty but asked that it be granted in a substantial amount, before informing the court that Berth was still hospitalized.
Spencer was ordered to stay 50 feet away from Berth and the matter was transferred to Mahdia Court for July 13.
