Stabbing: no bail bid

Stabbing: no bail bid

AN Albury man charged over stabbing two brothers and assaulting their mother made no application for bail during a brief court appearance yesterday.

Adam Jay Azzi, 38, of Thurgoona Street, appeared in Albury Local Court with solicitor Charles Aitken advising he would remain in custody without seeking bail.

Mr Aitken said Azzi was charged with serious indictable matters.

Azzi has been charged with two counts of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and malicious damage.

It is alleged he committed the offences on Tuesday.

The assault occasioning actual bodily harm charge relates to a woman, 44, whom Azzi allegedly punched in the face.

Police say the woman is a former partner of Azzi.

The malicious damage charge involves a mobile phone owned by her.

Mr Aitken asked for the preparation of a police brief of evidence which should be served personally on Azzi.

Magistrate Megan Greenwood ordered the preparation of a police brief by April 12 with a reply two weeks later.

Ms Greenwood asked whether Azzi would be getting legal representation.

Mr Aitken said Azzi told him that he had spoken by phone to solicitor Marshall Sheehan.

Otherwise he would be represented by Legal Aid solicitor Andrea MacDonald.

Mr Aitken asked for Azzi to appear in person on April 26 rather than through a video link from jail.
