Pair accused of beating man denied bail

Two males charged with causing grievous bodily harm over the beating of a man have been denied bail.

Stephen Rolle, 20, and a 15-year-old, are accused of beating Eczinard Liberis with a piece of wood on June 14.

At their arraignment before Magistrate Ambrose Armbrister, the teenager pleaded guilty.

But Armbrister entered a not guilty plea after the teen said that he was acting in self defense when Liberis pulled a cutlass on him.

As the magistrate lacked jurisdiction to consider bail for the charge, the men were remanded into custody.

They have the right to apply to the Supreme Court for bail ahead of their September trial.
