Stabbing suspect found fit to stand trial
A bail hearing was postponed Monday for the man arrested after a startling daylight stabbing at a park in downtown St. John's.
James Rogers, 35, was arrested Aug. 10, not long after a profusely bleeding man flagged down an ambulance near Harbourside Park along Water Street.
Rogers had undergone a psychiatric assessment at the Waterford Hospital over the last week. On Monday, he had been found fit to stand trial in court.
Rogers is charged with aggravated assault. His bail hearing has been set over until next Monday in order to give his lawyer more time to prepare.
He also faces an unrelated charge of robbing Moo Moo's, a downtown ice cream shop, in April.
