Ward remanded for slapping man with wood
The man accused of striking another around his head with a piece of wood has been remanded to HMP Dodds.
Canute Hiran Ward, 36, of Dayrells Hill, Christ Church, was not required to plead to doing serious bodily harm to Ramar Nurse, with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him, whilst at Fitts Village, St James on January 2, after appearing in the Holetown Magistrates’ Court just before noon today.
The gardener was represented by Michael Laahley QC. However in his absence, his junior Khadijah Wickham held for him.
After Magistrate Wanda Blair remanded him, Ward’s mother, who was sitting at the back of the court, bent her head and began sobbing. He returns to court on February 1. (RA)
