MURDER-ACCUSED Scott Harewood will reappear in court next month to answer charges relating to the death of Dereck Hunte.
Harewood also pleaded guilty to unrelated charges of burglary and theft when he appeared in the Oistins Magistrates Court today. He was sentenced to 18 months for burglary and nine months for theft.
The 28-year-old of Bequest, St Philip, is accused of murder in the shooting death of Hunte, which took place on June 3 in Lynches, St Philip.
His brother Stuart Kenny McMillan Harewood, 30, of the same district, has also been charged with Hunte’s murder.
According to Police, Hunte was liming with other persons in the community when a vehicle appeared and gunshots were fired. Everyone ran, but Hunte was later found injured after running a short distance away.
He died at the scene. 
Meanwhile, Police also arrested and charged, 30-year-old Keven Jason Omar Gabriel for assisting Scott Harewood who was the subject of a wanted man notice last month.
Gabriel, of Kendall Hill B, Kendall Hill, Christ Church, offered him a place to stay during the time he was wanted by Police. (PR/SAT)
