Greaves to know fate by August 14
A man who injured a mother and her daughter at the Valery high rise housing complex in May, will know his fate by August 14 when the case comes up again.
Shakir Akil Elias Greaves, a 24-year-old painter of Block 9E Division Drive, Eden Lodge, St Michael, was again remanded when he reappeared before the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court.
He faces charges of intentionally destroying Jalisa Springer’s cellular phone case and assaulting her on May 5 and then unlawfully and maliciously wounding the woman’s mother, Cherral Springer, on May 11.
Greaves was not required to plead to his final charge of causing serious bodily harm to Jalisa Springer with intent to maim, disfigure and disable her on May 11.
Greaves pleaded guilty on an earlier occasion to three of the four charges and a pre-sentencing report was ordered on him.
When Greaves reappeared on Friday, the prosecutor, Station Sergeant Neville Watson, was to update the court about the condition of the complainant who was hospitalized the last time the matter was called.
Both mother and daughter were in the courtroom on Friday. However, the matter still could not proceed since Greaves’ attorney had earlier informed the court that he wanted to be present and asked that the case be stood down.
When afternoon came and the attorney was not present, Magistrate Douglas Frederick adjourned the matter.
