Two men remanded after bloody domestic dispute

A bloody weekend brawl in the Pine, St Michael ended with two men before a Bridgetown Court yesterday.

The two alleged accused, involved in the matter, are Akeem Olusha Tudor, 31, of Block 73 Regent Hill, Pinelands, St Michael and Darian Orlando Yearwood, 27, of Block 4 Princess Royal Avenue, Pinelands, St Michael.

An unnamed woman was also injured in the dispute, she is reportedly the mother of Yearwood and the significant other to Tudor. 

Tudor and Yearwood allegedly inflicted injuries on each other on November 3, resulting in both facing counter charges.

Tudor is accused of wounding Yearwood with intent to maim, disfigure and disable him, using a firearm with the intent to commit wounding and possessing six rounds of ammunition.

On the other hand, Yearwood is charged with unlawfully wounding Tudor with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him. 

No pleas were entered as the charges are indictable, meaning pleas can only be entered at the High Court.  

Tudor was given an automatic remand due to his firearm charge, however, Yearwood was given the opportunity to tell the court why he should be granted bail.

When he began to address the court he attributed blame to Tudor but was stopped by the magistrate. She reminded him to avoid speaking on details of the incident and instead on any mitigating factors in his favour. Yearwood, however, appeared speechless.

Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant sided with the prosecution who objected to bail and remanded both until December 4.
