WESTERN BUREAU:

The 2011 case of a St James farmer, accused of severing another man's hand during a quarrel, was set for mention on February 4 for him to settle his legal representation.

O'Neil Pinnock, from Maroon Town, is before the Montego Bay Resident Magistrate's Court charged with felonious wounding during an incident on August 15, 2011, during an argument over rum.

Pinnock said attorney-at-law Albert Morgan is his new counsel, replacing lawyer Chuma Parris.

"My lawyer will not be here today. He told me he would send a letter to the court because he would not be able to be here today," Pinnock told Resident Magistrate Sheron Barnes.

Attorney-at-law Martyn Thomas, watching proceedings on behalf of the complainant, suggested a February date for the case to be mentioned.

"Possibly we could set a date for when Mr Morgan will be here," said Thomas.

"The matter is set for February 4. Your bail is extended," RM Barnes told Pinnock.
