A 22-year-old man was arraigned in Magistrate’s Court yesterday accused of abusing a year-old boy.
Shaquille Fox, of Murphy Town, Abaco, appeared before Magistrate Ancella Williams in Marsh Harbour, charged with grievous harm.
It is alleged that Fox intentionally harmed the infant on Monday, December 16.
According to police, the child, suffering from bodily injuries, was taken to the Marsh Harbour Clinic by his mother.
“I did not mean to hurt the child,” Fox told the magistrate as he pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Magistrate Williams denied Fox bail “for his his own security.”
He was remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison in Fox Hill, until his trial begins on February 27, 2014.
Fox was not represented by counsel.
