Charge upgraded to murder
POLICE HAVE upgraded the charge against Raheem Ricardo O’Neil Hinds from serious bodily harm to murder.
Hinds, 20, of Phillip’s Road, Pinelands, St Michael, had been charged in relation to the death of 50-year-old Michael Yearwood of Hilltop, Pinelands.
On 12 March, both men were reportedly involved in an altercation at Princess Royal Avenue. Yearwood was apparently struck in his head with an object and was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) by private vehicle.
Yearwood was hospitalised then released. Sometime later he was again hospitalised and subsequently died at the QEH.
Hinds is scheduled to appear at the District A Magistrates Court today. (PR/SAT)
