A minibus driver was on Thursday charged with attempted murder and is now on remand.

It is alleged that on October 31, 2016, at Lodge Georgetown, Clayson Clementson unlawfully and maliciously wounded Andrea Phillips with intent to murder her. The 47-year-old North Ruimveldt resident was not required to plea to the indictable charge when it was read by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan.

Phillips was absent from court, since according to the prosecution she is still in hospital in a critical condition.

The matter has been transferred to Court Three and will be called on November 22, 2016.
