Accused in wounding case gets bail

A man who is accused of stabbing a woman in the back with a knife was granted bail when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday.

Charged with wounding with intent is Leon Cole of a Kingston address.

According to reports, on December 12, the accused attacked the complainant and stabbed her several times in the back.

When asked by Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey how he knew the complainant, he stated, "Her common-law husband attacked me the night before the incident, and hit me in my face several times."

The complainant, however, refuted his claims stating that, "him trust my goods and don't pay me back and stab me for them."

Cole, who pleaded guilty to the offence, begged RM Pusey for leniency, "Your Honour, I am asking you for some leniency to please grant me bail, due to I have a dependent person. My babymother depends on me."

He was granted bail in the sum of $150,000 and is to return to court for mention on January 24.
