Student charged with murder remanded


Added 15 November 2019


A student of the Frederick Smith Secondary School has been charged with the murder of schoolmate Temario Cavone Emmanuel Holder.

The student appeared in the Holetown Magistrate's Court today and was remanded to the Government Industrial School (Dodds). 

Sixteen year-old Holder, formerly of Checker Hall, St Lucy, was the victim of a stabbing incident on the school’s compound. The murder accused’s name is being withheld because he is a minor.

The November 8 incident sparked national interest and caused classes at the Trents, St James institution to be suspended up to this point. This morning Minister of Education Santia Bradshaw and police officials met with students, their parents and guardians. (PR/AG-B)
