Man charged with attempted murder remanded

Charged: Mark Chester

Mark Chester, a 29-year-old labourer of Queenstown village, Essequibo Coast, Region Two, was on Thursday arraigned before Suddie Magistrate Tamieka Clarke on a charge of attempted murder.
He was not required to plead to this indictable charge, which stated that on April 12, 2024, at Queenstown village, Essequibo Coast, he attempted to murder 45-year-year-old Marlon Jones.
The prosecutor objected to Chester being placed on bail bail, and as such, Chester has been remanded to prison until April 30, 2024, when the case is scheduled to next be called.
