Shoot­ing sus­pect to stay in cus­tody

Matthew Brian Misener to ap­pear in court Jan. 18

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - PROVINCE -

A 30-year-old Pleas­ant Grove man charged in con­nec­tion with a shoot­ing in­ci­dent in that com­mu­nity last month has agreed to re­main in cus­tody un­til his next court ap­pear­ance Jan. 18.

Matthew Brian Misener con­sented to re­mand dur­ing a show cause hear­ing be­fore a jus­tice of the peace.

Misener, who sat qui­etly be­side his lawyer dur­ing the hear­ing, is charged with two counts of ag­gra­vated as­sault and one count of care­less use of a firearm.

The charges against the ac­cused stem from an in­ci­dent early Christ­mas morn­ing in which two men suf­fered gun­shot wounds.

One of those men was treated at hos­pi­tal and re­leased, while the other was trans­ported to hos­pi­tal in Hal­i­fax for fur­ther treat­ment.

Mem­bers of Misener’s fam­ily were present in the court­room for the hear­ing.

A pub­li­ca­tion ban was im­posed at the re­quest of the Crown.
