A pastor with two other members of his family, including his wife, were released on bail each after they appeared in court on a charge of unlawfully and maliciously inflicting grievous bodily harm on a man.
Pastor Nigel Morgan, his wife Althea, an office clerk, and their daughter, Crystal, pleaded not guilty to throwing a hot liquid on Cuthbert Victory, who suffered burns to his back, shoulder, face and chest, earlier this month.
The Doctors said that he was doused with hot water mixed with oil during the April 9 incident in Jamaica.
They appeared before Chief Magistrate, Rechanne Browne-Matthias at the Serious Offence Court in Kingstown, and will re-appear in the Mesopotamia Magistrate’s Court in Marriaqua, the interior community where they incident took place, on April 29.
“I hope you all make enough money — you hear?” said Morgan, as photographers too the picture of the family as they left the court building.
“I hope you all give an offering to all the churches,” he added.
