Murder charge for stabbing

A man who allegedly stabbed his brother in the face is soon expected to face a murder charge.

Julien Leroy Griffith, 38, of Colleton, St Peter, was remanded to prison on April 14 after being charged with committing serious bodily harm against
his brother Antonio Orlando Griffith, 40, of the same address on April 12.

However, the older Griffith died at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital last Wednesday and a statement from police today indicated that the charge is expected to be upgraded to murder.

The siblings were involved in a dispute at their family home when the fatal stabbing occurred. (PR/DP)
