A Fashion designer from Liberta who was involved in an altercation at the Craft Market last week has been granted bail.
Mark Copeland was granted bail in the high Tuesday morning for $30,000 with a cash component of $5,000. He is represented by Attorney Wayne Benjamin Marsh
He was ordered to surrender his passport immediately and to report to the Liberta police station three times every week.
The accused was charged with wounding Kobe Stevens with intent to murder
The dispute is said to have originated from a Facebook post and intensified when the incident unfolded on October 12.
Copeland, a tailor operating a stall at the Craft Market, is accused of injuring Kobe Stevens with the intent to kill and wounding his girlfriend -the mother of his 6-month-old child, Keillia Mentor.
The incident occurred when the couple, accompanied by a friend, strolled through the craft market and encountered the defendant.
Reports suggest that the couple attempted to avoid a confrontation with the defendant, given previous exchanges on social media.
However, as they prepared to depart, the defendant allegedly attacked them with a knife concealed in a shopping bag.
The consequences of the altercation were severe, with Stevens sustaining substantial injuries, while Mentor reportedly suffered a non-life-threatening head injury.
He was charged with Wounding with Intent to Murder and Grievous Bodily Harm.
