A 34-year-old man, who dealt his co-worker several stabs about his body causing his left arm to be amputated, was moments ago remanded to prison for the offence.
Ryan Lowe, of Eccles, was not required to plead to the indictable charge which stated that on November 23, 2016, at Dump Site, Eccles, East Bank Demerara, he wounded Leroy Cummings with intent to commit murder.
Facts presented by the court prosecutor stated that the accused and the victim are known to each other since they worked together.
However, on the day in question, the defendant and others were at the dump site drinking alcohol while the victim was asleep in a hammock.
The court heard the defendant dealt the victim two lashes to his knee with a bottle and confronted him over some items he allegedly stole.
The two men then got into an argument and Lowe armed himself with a knife and dealt the victim several stabs about his body.
The injured man was then rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation( GPCH) where he was admitted for his injuries.
The prosecutor objected to bail being granted to the defendant on the grounds that the victim’s injuries are life threatening. He added that due to the injuries the victim received, his left arm had to be amputated.
The court heard that it was only a few days ago that the defendant was arrested after evading the police for three years.
On those grounds, the Magistrate remanded Lowe to prison until December 11, 2019
