January 19, 2016

A man who was ordered to undergo psychiatric evaluation after being accused of stabbing his girlfriend 16 times was remanded when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate Court on Monday.


Orville Johnson, 26, charged with unlawful wounding, was remanded after the psychiatric evaluation reports stated that he is normal, of sound mind, and is therefore fit to proceed with the case. 

 

Allegations are that Johnson attacked his girlfriend and stabbed her repeatedly after she indicated she would not spend the night with him.

 

He pleaded not guilty to the charge.

 

In court, the presiding judge, senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey said she was moved to remand Johnson because he is dangerous.

 

“If him stab her so many times and him love her, I wonder how many times he would stab me,” Pusey said.

 

Johnson has retained a lawyer and is to reappear in court on January 25.
