Miner accused of trying to kill brother with arrow
A 25-year-old miner was on Monday hauled before the Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan and charged with attempting to kill his brother with an arrow.
Young Williams was not required to plea to the indictable charge which alleged that on January 26, 2019, at Waramandong Village, Upper Mazaruni, he wounded Jamal Williams with intent to commit murder.
Police Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield told the court that on the day in question the defendant was at his mother’s home at Waramandong imbibing in alcohol with his brothers.
It is alleged that the defendant threw his glass of alcohol in his mother’s face and this caused a confrontation with him and his brothers.
Mansfield told the court that the defendant left the home but returned and shot his brother to the chest with an arrow and bow.
The Prosecutor was opposed to the defendant being released on bail since the victim is in the Intensive Care Unit of the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation.
The Magistrate remanded Williams to prison until March 19, 2019.
The matter was transferred to the Kamarang Magistrate’s Court.
