A man was Wednesday arraigned on a charge of attempted murder of a someone he believed had informed police about a crime he had allegedly committed.

Twenty-four year old Denzil Wilson of Costello Housing Scheme was charged with the attempted murder of Seon Wright by stabbing him several times about his body.

The incident occurred on May 2, 2017.

Wilson was not required to plea to the indictable offence, was refused bail and remanded to prison until May 25, 2017 by Chief Magistrate, Ann Mc Lennan.


The prosecution’s case is that on the day in question, Wright was sitting at Wilson’s grocery store when he went an and punched him to the face.

Wilson then allegedly accused Wright of giving police information about him in connection with a criminal act committed . The incident escalated and Wilson dealt Wright several stabs about the body.

Wright was picked up in the vicinity of Parliament Building and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was listed as critical.

Police Prosecutor Alwyn Moore objected to bail being granted since Wright is still hospitalised. The prosecutor feared that if Wilson is granted bail, the defendant might tamper with the prosecution’s main witness.
