Jowayne Haughton has been discharged from Mount St John’s Medical Centre, just over a week after two men allegedly slit his throat in an incident at the Cactus Bar on Prince Charles Street, Ottos.
The police confirmed the Jamaican national was sent home yesterday. He had spent several days in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) since, according to the report the hospital gave the police, a main artery was damaged and he had suffered significant blood loss.
A police source said Haughton has to continue outpatient treatment for some time since the injury has not fully healed.
Since the incident, the police have charged 37-year-old Casey McKenzie of DeSouza Road and Kenroy “Spani Man” James, 29, of Paige Road, Ottos.
They were both denied bail by Chief Magistrate Joanne Walsh who remanded them to prison on the joint charge of attempted murder.
The magistrate set May 11 as their committal date, therefore it is expected they will return to court that day to find out if there’s enough evidence to send the matter to the High Court for trial.
