Man, 43, denies unlawfully wounding woman

A 43-year-old Hamilton Parish man has denied unlawfully wounding a woman.

At a court appearance in August, Omar Furquan had admitted the charges, which allege that the offence took place in Devonshire on August 5.

However, Mr Furquan changed his plea to not guilty when he appeared in Magistrates' Court for sentencing this morning.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo set a trial date for November 20 and extended Mr Furquan's bail.
