Common-law couple Orwin DeCinto and Carlotta Rice were earlier this week arraigned before Georgetown Magistrate Leron Daly charged with assaulting each other; and they each denied the charge when it was read to them.The court heard that on August 5, 2018, while at their Albouystown residence, they assaulted each other with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.According to the prosecution’s facts, on the day in question, at about 19:00h, DeCinto was conversing with a friend when he became embroiled in an argument with Rice over an issue that occurred earlier that day. In the course of the argument, Rice allegedly became annoyed and tore down DeCinto’s shirt before attacking him with an object, causing him to receive injuries to his right wrist. They each eventually ended up assaulting the other so as to cause grievous bodily harm. The Police prosecutor did not object to either defendant being placed on bail, thus Magistrate Daly placed DeCinto on $10,000 bail and Rice on $40,000 bail.The matter will be tried in September.
