Two brothers who reportedly threatened to kill their aunt after damaging her window in a dispute over a “dead lef” house, were both offered $100,000 bail.

Ray Gazader, 26, security guard, and Jermaine Gazader, 27, both of Maple View Road in Kingston, were both offered bail by Parish Judge Vaughn Smith after pleading not guilty to malicious destruction of property.

Allegations are that on August 10 the complainant was at home sleeping when she was awakened by banging sounds. She reportedly looked outside her window and saw her nephews. Jermaine then reportedly told her: “P$#$%^ come out a mi yard before mi mince you wd mi gun.”

Further reports are that both men hit the kitchen window before threatening and daring the complainant to come out of the house.

The complainant reportedly called the police and both were arrested and charged.

When the matter was mentioned in court last Wednesday, the prosecutor told the court that the Crown was opposed to bail based on the grounds that both accused men were currently before the Gun Court.

The prosecutor also said that the complainant feels intimidated and that the court must take into consideration that Jermaine was on a gun charge and had been making threats related to gun activities.

However, the accused men's lawyer, C J Mitchell, said that the men were offered bail in the high court, and while they were in the process of taking up their bail, this charge was laid.

Mitchell said that the allegations were fabricated by the men's older relatives to keep them in custody, as the family is involved in a dispute over “dead lef house”.

“It's a fiction of their imagination. It's an outright lie that has been brought in, simply to create chaos and confusion.

“Herself and her sister seem to have the desire to take the house and exclude the other family members,” the lawyer reported.

However, he told the court that the complainant was not the owner of the house and that it was neither willed to her nor was her name on the title.

The judge subsequently offered the men bail on condition that they report to the Duhaney Park Police Station every Wednesday, and that they are not to return to the complainant's home where they also reside.

“If the complainant so much as catch a cold, police coming for you. If you have friends or well-wishers intimidating the complainant, tell them to stop,” Judge Smith warned the men.

They are scheduled to return to court on November 3.
