BorlandPolice continue to investigate the chopping incident in Libertad Village that has left 34 year old Giovanni Borland in a critical condition in the hospital and his assailant, Joseph West behind bars. This morning, the social media was abuzz and it was over the allegation that Borland had succumbed to the chop wound to his head and that the case was upgraded to murder. After making checks with authorities, we verified that Borland remains alive but in critical condition at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.


As for Joseph West, he was arraigned at the Corozal Magistrates Court yesterday morning where he was charged with attempted murder, dangerous harm and use of deadly means of harm. Because of the nature of the offence, West was not offered bail by Magistrate Hurl Hamilton. Instead he was remanded to the Hattieville Prison until July 15th 2014 when he is scheduled to reappear in court.


At midday today, West was still in custody at the Corozal Police station where he was transported to the Corozal Community Hospital to dress the wound he sustained on his right thumb during the altercation. That altercation took place at a local bar in Libertad Village between Borland and West. It stopped but continued at another bar a few minutes later when Borland allegedly followed West with a machete but West managed to disarm him. Shortly after, Borland attacked Jospeh West’s brother, Denmar West causing injuries to his forehead. It was at this point when Joseph West set chase after Borland with the same machete he took from him. Borland stumbled and West caught up with him and inflicted the chop wound to his head.
