West Bay man denies attempted murder charge

| 13/06/2014

(CNS): A 43-year-old West Bay man appeared in Grand Court on Friday and denied trying to kill a 62-year-old man in an incident which took place in the district on 2 June. Mark Jackson pleaded not guilty to one count of attempted murder and a second count of wounding with intent. Jackson was bailed by the judge to return to court in February next year for what is expected to be a five day trial. Jackson denies the allegations and is claiming self-defence regarding an alleged machete attack during a dispute at Rainbow Lane. Ronald Baxter Wright received a number of chop wounds and was taken to the hospital in George Town for emergency surgery.
