When he appeared before Chief Magistrate Sonya Young at the Serious Offences Court on Wednesday, Foster was granted bail in the sum of $20,000.

His bail was granted under the condition that he surrender all travel documents, report to the Central Police Station every Monday and Friday and does not make contact with the virtual complainant in the matter.

Foster is expected to return to the Serious Offences Court on November 26. However, the preliminary inquiry is scheduled to begin on March 12, 2014, and according to Inspector Adolphus Delplesche, eight witnesses are expected to give evidence.

Foster is charged with burglarizing the home of the Medicas in October 2012 and stealing items valued at EC$5,300; unlawfully and maliciously wounding Bradley Medica by striking him on the head with a gun; and assaulting Endrist Medica, also causing bodily harm.

Foster appeared at the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court on Monday; however, Magistrate Rechanne Browne-Matthias referred the matter to the Serious Offences Court after she recused herself. (DD)
