Suspect charged for attempted murderNikita Jordan, 18, of 48 Barrack Street, Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic, Kingston, was yesterday remanded to prison after she appeared before Acting Chief Magistrate Melissa Robertson, at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court to answer a charge of attempted murder.Jordan is accused of pouring a corrosive substance on Haniyfa Cordis, 15, on October 8, 2008, while the victim lay sleeping.The defendant was not required to plead to the indictable offence. She was represented by attorney-at-law Mohamed Zafar, who in a bail application, said that his client is a mother of one.He added that on the day in question his client was acting in self defence and that Cordis attempted to stab Jordan.However, Police Prosecutor Denise Griffith said that bail should be denied, because Cordis is still critical at the hospital.
