A man accused of stabbing his babymother in the neck had his bail extended when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court recently.

Charged with unlawful wounding is Devon Cunningham who pleaded not guilty to the offence.

Allegations are that on the day of the incident, the man and the female complainant, who is his babymother, had a dispute which rapidly became physical. The court was told that Cunningham drew a knife and plunged it into the neck of the complainant causing serious injury. The wound bled profusely.

The court was further told that the complainant was hospitalised for an extended period.

Cunningham had his bail extended by Senior Resident Magistrate (RM) Judith Pusey until January 13 at which time he is to reappear for a mention hearing. An outstanding medical report is expected to be made available for his next court appearance.
