A?SOLEMN?looking Dave Anthony Searles walked out of the District “A”?Magistrates Court yesterday and into the arms of his two sisters after facing a charge of unlawfully killing his baby son.
His sisters Suzan and Jackie embraced him, looking sadly into his eyes, while his cousin Kelly Trotman also wrapped her arms around him as he kissed her on the forehead.
Dressed in a blue long-sleeved shirt and dark blue pants, Searles, 43, of Cemetery Lane, St Peter, was not allowed to plead to the charge that on December 5, he unlawfully killed Ethan Searles, who was five months old.
He was represented by Keith Simmons and Branford Taitt Jr.
Presiding Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant placed the father of four on bail in the sum of $25 000 and adjourned the case until February 21.
