Thirty-one year old ex-BDF soldier Rennick Baizer, a resident of Park Avenue, Lake Independence, was charged with grievous harm when he appeared before Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser.
Rennick Baizer pled not guilty to the charge. He was released on a bail of $2,000 and his case was adjourned until February 28.
The incident occurred on December 20. The complainant, Shana Gillett, the ex-common-law wife of Mr Baizer, reported to the police that she and Baizer had an argument and Rennick Baizer punched her several times in her face.
Shana Gillett was given a medico-legal form, and she was taken to KHMH, where the doctor who examined her classified her injuries as grievous harm.
