Taxi driver remanded for allegedly attempting to murder wife
A 60-year-old taxi driver appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan Tuesday, accused of attempting to kill his reputed wife.
Derrick Solomon of Block ‘F’ North Sophia, Georgetown was not required to plea to the charge, which alleged that on March 2, 2019, at North Sophia, Solomon wounded Carol London with intent to commit murder.
Police Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield objected to bail being granted to Solomon on the grounds that the victim is in a critical condition at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation.
Mansfield told the court that Solomon and London live together at North Sophia with their six-year-old daughter.
On the day in question, there was a heated argument between the couple when Solomon armed himself with a knife and stabbed the woman to her face and other parts of the upper body.
Solomon escaped but was subsequently arrested by the police. He was remanded to prison until March 26, 2019.
