Former Corporation of Hamilton alderman Carlton Simmons was charged with attempted murder yesterday. Mr Simmons was in Magistrates’ Court accused of the attempted murder of Jahkeil Samuels in Ambiance Lounge, on Angle Street, Hamilton, on August 12.

Mr Simmons, 40, from Angle Street, is the owner of Ambiance Lounge and served as an alderman between 2012 and 2015.

He was not required to enter a plea, as the charge must be heard in Supreme Court. Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo

remanded Mr Simmons in custody until October 2, when he is expected to appear in Supreme Court.
