A 22-year old woman of Wesley was remanded into custody yesterday after being charged for the attempted murder of her cousin over the weekend.

Muriel Thomas allegedly stabbed Rosemund Cheryl Thomas with a knife in her neck during a dispute.

Thomas was also charged with grievous bodily harm.

Her bail was denied on the premise that she was a flight risk and that the victim could still be in danger as there were allegations of threats from Thomas. The prosecution also feared that the defendant would interfere with investigations.

Her preliminary inquiry is scheduled for May 20 at Wesley.

The victim is now out of the hospital.
