The ‘Grung Gaad’ Bounty Killer appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court this morning, and stood accused of assaulting and wounding his girlfriend. Initial reports were that Bounty Killer allegedly assaulted her with a hammer, and now a report in today’s Jamaica Observer newspaper states that he’s also accused of using a mosquito zapper racquet to hit the woman.
In court today, Bounty Killer’s lawyer sought to get bail for his client, highlighting that there were major inconsistencies in the statement given by the woman and the medical report. The woman gave a statement alleging that she was hit several times in the head with the hammer, but according to Bounty Killer’s lawyer, the medical report does not support the claim.
Bail was however denied for Bounty Killer, as the magistrate pointed out that he had previously appeared before her for a similar offence. She closed stating that she did not think it would be prudent for her to grant Bounty Killer bail at this time. He has thus been remanded in custody until September 27, when the case will be heard once again.
