Man On Wounding Charge Remanded

Fitzroy Johnson, who the police is accusing of stabbing another man last month, was again remanded in custody when he appeared inside the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on Monday, April 24, 2018.

Johnson was charged with unlawful wounding after allegedly stabbing Roydel McFarlane, during a confrontation on March 23. Johnson returns to court on May 3 and the matter will be transferred to a committal hearing.

Clerk of Court Hanson Lawson told Parish Judge Maxine Ellis that the court awaits a medical report from the Kingston Public Hospital (KPH) to complete the case file.

Lawson also told the court that the Crown is opposing bail for Johnson because he had allegedly threatened to kill the complainant when the complainant tried to report the matter to the police.

The complainant, who was rushed to the Hagley Park Health Centre before he was admitted to the Kingston Public Hospital for three days, told the judge that he is recovering.

He had reportedly lost consciousness after being stabbed in the neck.

According to investigating officer, Constable Courtney Reid of the Hunts Bay Police, Johnson evaded the police after the incident had took place.  However, the accused man told the judge that he turned himself over to the police on March 25.
