Accused stabber banned from Warwick

A MAN accused of stabbing his cousin with a hunting knife has been banned from entering the town of Warwick.

Nathan William Charles has been in jail since August 2016 after he was arrested in Warwick following a fight with his cousin.

Mr Charles, who was granted bail at Brisbane Supreme Court on Monday, allegedly used a small hunting knife to stab his cousin four times during a fight.

The court heard he faced an attempted murder charge but that was downgraded to intending to commit grievous bodily harm during the court process.

Justice Debra Mullins said there had been bad blood between Mr Charles and the victim and his family before the fight.

Mr Charles was granted bail on Monday on the condition he not drink, commit crimes or enter Warwick except to go to court.

Mr Charles's lawyer Andrew Anderson said he believed the prosecution case was weak. A trial is set begin in Warwick on May 8. -NewsRegional
