, the lawyer said.The lawyer also told the court that his client was threatened with a gun. “He placed a gun to her head….and said he would kill her.” He added that his client had to be kept at an undisclosed address for her own safety.He posited that the court must take some stand against domestic violence, noting the statistics that several women have died by the hands of their husbands.Teixeira’s lawyer interjected and said that his client was not guilty of any crime. He added that his client is fully aware of the consequences if he breaches the protection order. Hugh said that the court cannot look at statistics when granting bail. Police Prosecutor Stephen Telford objected to bail on the grounds that the accused is likely to commit similar offences if bail is granted. The Magistrate remanded Teixeira.
