Two on murder charge remanded
Two St Michael men charged with the island’s 37th murder earlier this month were remanded to prison when they appeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
Christopher Anderson Shepherd, a 20-year-old shop assistant, of Queen Street, The City, and Rio Richian Jelani Malcolm Benn, 28, of Upper Dukes Alley, Nelson Street, The City, were not required to plead to murdering LeAndrew Sharvar Coward, 33, formerly of Field Place, Bayville, St Michael, on October 3.
Prosecutor Vernon Waithe later asked that accused Benn be released back into police custody in relation to further investigations.
Acting Magistrate Joy-Ann Clarke ordered that Benn be released into police custody until Monday.
The magistrate, however, remanded, both he and co-accused Shepherd to HMP Dodds until November 15. (HLE)
