Murder accused facing five charges
THE MAN CHARGED with last week’s murder at Vaughn’s Land, St Joseph, appeared before Magistrate Ian Weekes yesterday to answer five charges in the District “D” Magistrates’ Court.
He is Ramario Oneal Boxill, 19, who was not required to plead to the murder charge or four other firearm-related charges.
The unemployed man, of no fixed address, is charged with murdering 41-year-old David Miller a short distance away from Miller’s home at Vaughn’s Land No. 1, St Joseph, last Thursday.
Boxill is also charged with using a firearm without a valid licence on the same day within the same parish.
His other charges, in the District “E” jurisdiction, are having a 40-calibre pistol in his possession without a valid licence last Thursday; having a nine-millimetre pistol without a valid licence, and having 16 rounds of ammunition, all on the same day.
Boxill, nursing wounds to his left hand and foot, was remanded to HMP Dodds, and will reappear at the District “F” Magistrates’ Court on May 22. (CC)
