Attempted murder charge dismissed against Maryann Daby


Twenty-six-year-old Maryann Daby was on Thursday freed from the attempted murder of a Police Officer after Magistrate Leron Daly ruled in favour of a No-Case Submission made by her lawyer Mark Waldron at the end of the Preliminary Inquiry.

It is alleged that on May 13, 2018, at Albert Street and Thomas Lands, with intent to commit murder, Daby attempted to discharge a firearm at Police Constable Christopher Kissoon.

Daby was out on $750,000 High Court bail.

The Magistrate, in her ruling, said the evidence of the victim, key police witnesses John Holder and Superintendent Gary McAllister were conflicting and not credible.

Daby still faces two more charges relating to the possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition.

The two charges allege that on the same day, Daby had .32 pistol along with six live rounds without being a licensed firearm holder.

Police Prosecutor Richard Harris made an application to the court for the two matters to be transferred to the Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan since it would be prejudicial for the same court to hear the matter.

Magistrate Daly adjourned until July 30, 2019, for report.
