Paul Hamilton, accused of attempted murder following a double stabbing incident in the Co Antrim village of Dervock, will continue to be remanded after a hearing today (Thursday, April 17) at Ballymena Magistrates’ Court.
The 33-year-old defendant with an address listed on court papers as Church View Dervock spoke via video link only to confirm his name and acknowledge the charges against him. Hamilton is accused of two counts of attempted murder after two individuals were stabbed outside licenced premisis in Dervock.
A police officer in the case told the court she believed they could connect the defendant to the charges.
The defendant was arrested along with a female in England after travelling there following the incident and after an appeal for information as to his whereabouts by the PSNI.
No bail application was presented in front of the court on Thursday morning, with a defence Barrister telling the court police stated the attack on two individuals was part of a “feud situation” and that it was “sensible to try to get an address outside the area”.
The case was adjourned to August 21 via video link at Coleraine Magistrates’ Court.
