Kirby Spence awaits the resumption of his bail hearing in provincial court in Corner Brook Wednesday afternoon.
Kirby Spence will find out if he will be granted bail or not Friday morning.
The Massey Drive resident, who celebrated his 19th birthday behind bars Tuesday, is one of two men charged in a violent home invasion in Corner Brook last Friday night.
The other accused, 33-year-old Andre Lecuyer — also from Massey Drive, was released from custody Monday.
Spence did not have a bail hearing until Wednesday afternoon. Judge Wayne Gorman heard evidence from Crown attorneys Alana Dwyer and Adam Joyce as to why they opposed Spence’s release and from defence lawyer Sandi MacKinnon as to why he should be allowed out of jail.
Gorman said he wanted some time to consider the arguments from both sides and will render his decision Friday morning.
Spence and Lecuyer have been charged with multiple offences stemming from the alleged bounding and robbery of a 53-year-old man at a home on Humber Road last weekend. Both men also have other outstanding offences before the courts.
