No bail for Good Hope guard on wounding charge

Kevin Gudge

A security guard was yesterday remanded to prison after he was charged with wounding another individual who remains hospitalised.

It is alleged that Kevin Gudge, 21, of Good Hope, Essequibo, on November 29th, at Zeelugt, East Bank Essequibo, unlawfully and maliciously wounded Harshama Chowtie with intent to maim, disfigure or disable.

Gudge denied the charge, which was read to him by Magistrate Faith McGusty in Georgetown.

An application for bail was then made by his attorney, Everton Singh-Lammy.

However, police prosecutor Shellon Daniels objected to bail being granted, while citing the fact that the complainant remains hospitalised and that the injuries sustained are life threatening and can cause disability.

Magistrate McGusty later denied the accused bail and adjourned the matter until December 7th, when it is expected to be heard before the Chief Magistrate.
