Bail refused in stabbing case

A man charged after a stabbing incident was refused bail when he appeared in Summary Court on Friday.

Harrison Shane Jackson, 38, was charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm to another man on Monday night, Nov. 28.

Defense attorney John Furniss described the matter as arising from a domestic situation. He asked for bail, noting that Jackson had a job to go to and could be fitted with an electronic monitor.

Crown counsel Gavin Dixon objected to bail, noting that Jackson had gone to the victim’s residence.

Mr. Furniss suggested that bail could be granted on condition that Jackson temporarily move out of the George Town area.

A police statement released Friday indicated that officers had been called to the Cayman Islands Hospital, where the man had arrived with a stab wound to his neck. The incident occurred on Webb Road in George Town.

Magistrate Kirsty-Ann Gunn refused bail. She observed that the charge of wounding with intent can be dealt with only in the Grand Court and transmitted the file.

The next mention was set for Friday, Dec. 9.

Jackson was also charged with possession of an offensive weapon, a knife; possession and consumption of ganja; and possession of a utensil used for the consumption of ganja.
