Man charged with attempting to murder brother appears in St. John’s court
A man accused of stabbing his brother in St. Bride’s earlier this year has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him, including attempted murder.
Eugene Francis Foley entered the pleas last Monday during arraignments at Newfoundland Supreme Court in St. John’s.
Crown prosecutor Mike Murray indicated that while the transcript from the preliminary hearing, held in Harbour Grace provincial court in June, was not yet ready, he still wanted to set dates for the trial.
However Foley’s lawyer, Kevin Baker, preferred to wait for the transcript. He requested to have the case set over to the Oct. 1 arraignment date.
Justice William Goodridge agreed.
Foley faces six charges as a result of incidents that took place Jan. 28.
The 46-year-old is charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, two counts of driving while disqualified and breach of a probation order.
He remained in custody since his arrest in January until two weeks ago, when he was granted bail.
