Marchand man pleads guilty to wounding

A resident of Marchand, Castries yesterday pleaded guilty to wounding in which he is accused of chopping a man in the neck.

Ashley Georges of Marchand is scheduled to return to court on May 27, 2013 for sentencing.

According to the facts of the case, on October 9, 2011 at about 2 p.m., the virtual complainant said he was walking along the Marchand Road when he felt a sharp pain to the right side of his neck, and fell.

While on the ground, the complainant said he saw the defendant, Georges, standing over him with a cutlass in his hand.  The complainant said he could not see the handle on the cutlass, but he saw the blade which appeared very sharp and had blood dripping from it.

The medical report states that the victim had “a deep laceration with bleeding vessels to the right side of his neck”.

A few days later, while walking along the Rock Hall Road, the victim again encountered Georges who was again in possession of a cutlass.  The victim ran away to avoid further confrontation and reported the incident to the Marchand Police Station.
