Danesworth Boucher, the man charged in connection with the death of the Rudolf Gschloessl, co-owner of the popular restaurant, Café Aubergine, had a $50,000 bail bond imposed, along with one surety, when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday. He returns to court on Monday, December 14.

Boucher, 24, is of a Mona Heights, address, the same residence as Gschloessl.

The court was told that on October 25, Boucher used a knife to stab the German national in the neck. He then called the police and reported that someone had broken into the house.

The police saw Gschloessl in his bedroom, lying naked in a pool of blood. A knife, which the police theorise was the murder weapon, was found beside Gschloessl’s body.

A tour of the residence by the police team, however, showed no signs of break-in as all the windows had been grilled on the inside and there was no signs anywhere of forced entry.

A statement from the accused said he was in his room when he heard shouts of “help” coming from Gschloessl’s room.

Boucher is represented by Frankly Grenyion, who told the court that there were no blood evidence linking his client to the murder and that there was a third person in the room with Gschloessl on the night of the incident.
