ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – An Antiguan man accused of trying to kill his wife is scheduled to stand trial today Monday December 12, 2011 before a jury of his peers in the High Court.

Samuel James, 41, is charged with attempted murder and wounding with intent. He has pleaded not guilty to the offences.

James allegedly committed the acts when he was on a restraining order to stay away from his wife. He and the wife have four children.

According to court records, he allegedly stabbed his wife repeatedly at their Jennings Hill home on April 13, 2011 with a knife and as a result she sustained stab wounds to her face and the upper region of her body.

It is alleged that the act was committed while the children were at home, with one of the children observing the alleged attack.

James, who is on remand, is represented by Duane Jean Baptiste.
