Man remanded for throwing sister off veranda during drunken brawl

Charged: Fitzroy Patrick

A 33-year-old miner was on Wednesday remanded to prison after he attempted to murder his sister during a drunken brawl.

Fitzroy Patrick, of Micobie Village, Potaro River, was hauled before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court and was not required to plead to the indictable charge.

The charge against Patrick is that on September 24 at Light and Lamaha Streets, Georgetown, he unlawfully and maliciously wounded Ashana Patrick with the intent to murder her.

The Court heard that on the day in question, the two were imbibing when an argument ensued.

During the dispute, Fitzroy allegedly started to cuff the woman about her body before throwing her off the verandah.

As a result of the fall, the woman was seen with blood oozing from her eyes, ears, and mouth. As a result, she was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital, and her condition is listed as critical.

After listening to the facts of the matter, the Chief Magistrate remanded the 33-year-old miner to prison due to the seriousness of the crime. He will make another court appearance on October 19.
