There were lengthy submissions, impassioned pleas and calls for the evidence of the police’s accident reconstruction expert when the man charged with Sunday’s vehicular death of Rachel Pilgrim appeared in the Bridgetown Traffic Court yesterday.
But after it all, a bruised and bandaged Ahmal Jamal Phillips was remanded to HMP Dodds for 28 days.
Phillips, 24, of St Michael, was not required to plead to causing the death of Rachel Pilgrim, on March 17, by driving his Volkswagen Passat, registration number MB 9935, on Harbour Road, in a manner and at a speed dangerous to the public.
Prosecutor Sergeant Rudy Pilgrim voiced a strenuous objection to bail, saying “the situation was still volatile” and the matter was still under investigation.
