Security guard charged with stabbing remanded

January 13, 2017

A St James man who allegedly stabbed another man to death and subsequently fled the parish in 2015 will have his matter heard before the St James Parish Court on April 3.

Almando Bravo, a security guard of a Norwood address in St James, who was on the St James police's most wanted list, was remanded by presiding judge Bertram Morrison when he appeared before the Court on Monday.

It is alleged that in August 2015, Bravo and the victim were involved in a dispute, during which Bravo used a knife to inflict stab wounds to the other man. The victim later died in hospital.

Bravo reportedly fled to St Elizabeth but was later taken into police custody.

In court on Monday, Bravo's attorney, Adrian Dayes, told Morrison that his client did not get an opportunity to seek witnesses to speak in his behalf since he had been on custody following his recent arrest.

Dayes also said that Bravo fled to St Elizabeth out of fear of losing his own life following the stabbing. He, however, said that his client later turned himself in to the police.

Morrison ordered that Bravo be remanded until April 3 when the matter would be heard again.
