Husband on 1-year bond after assaulting wife

A procurement officer found himself before the Linden Magistrate’s Court after he reportedly assaulted his wife.
Burt Adams of Central Amelia’s Ward, Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice), appeared before Magistrate Wanda Fortune and pleaded not guilty to the charge which stated that between October 30 and November 9, at Central Amelia’s Ward, Linden, he unlawfully and maliciously assaulted 31-year-old Avay Roberts-Adams.
The prosecution is contending that the 31-year-old man and his wife had an argument and sometime during October 30 and November 9, he reportedly became angry, and a scuffle ensued between the couple, during which the defendant reportedly dealt Avay several blows to the body.
However, when the matter was called on Monday, Avay declined to offer evidence against her husband.
As a result, Magistrate Fortune placed Adams on a 1-year bond or, if he defaults, three months’ imprisonment. (G1)
