Teens get bail on wounding, bodily harm charges

A teenager was on Monday granted his release on bail after he denied stabbing an acquaintance with a broken bottle.

It is alleged that 18-year-old Dexter Williams committed the crime after the acquaintance tried to intervene in an argument between him and a friend.

Williams is charged with unlawfully and maliciously wounding Irakiz Jose Lopez on July 5th at Eteringbang Landing.
