Teenager remanded on wounding charge


The 16 year old Clare Hall student charged for allegedly attacking another student from the school has been remanded to custody.

The teenager made his appearance in the juvenile court on Tuesday on a charge of wounding with intent to murder.

He was remanded to the Langfords Police station and is set to be transferred to another facility this week.

The injured student, Je-dourea King reportedly required emergency surgery at Mount St John’s Medical Centre after being stabbed in the chest with a pocket knife.

The Education Ministry, which is investigating the matter, is resolute it has a zero tolerance approach to acts of violence and bullying in schools.

  1. Wounding with intent to murder sounds like a killer in training.At 16 my girlfriend went overseas to live and I couldn’t even eat . Ha ha first time I experienced love sick. This youngster has so much rage ?

  2. First time I ever see someone on a hospital bed and they have on a big boot as if they are a construction worker.

  3. The principal Mr. Azille is a big liar to say he didn’t know abut this. He and the school administration and police have failed this youngman badly. He is lucky to be alive.
    I hope the law deals with the attacker in a very stern manner. He is a killer in the making. His parents should also be made to pay a high price for bringing up such a killer. Parenting has consequences. You are responsible for your children up to the age that they have become mature, which is eighting years.

    • First you say he’s a killer in the making then you say his parents raised a killer….make up your mind. Also I assume you meant to say “eighteen”, which is sooo far from the truth. Who says that that is the age at which one becomes mature?
