Ian Causwell, the brother of convicted killer Stephen Causwell, is facing criminal charges for allegedly attacking his female companion inside her St Andrew home.

The alleged victim, a corporate executive, has since retained top criminal defense attorney Peter Champagnie, who confirmed this morning that he has obtained from the Family Court an interim order of protection.

The order bars Causwell from interfering with the alleged victim, Champagnie explained.

The attorney indicated that the order was sought because Causwell, who is a businessman, continued to telephone his client after the alleged attack.

Causwell was granted bail after he was arrested by the Constant Spring Police on the weekend for assault occasioning bodily harm, police sources revealed.

He is scheduled to appear before the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on Thursday.

Stephen Causwell was convicted last September for killing his former girlfriend Nadia Mitchell inside her Oakland apartment in St Andrew in July 2008.

He was sentenced to life in prison and must serve 20 years before he is eligible for parole.
