NICHOLAS SHOREY, 23, and Romario Phillips, 22, were charged yesterday with the December 8, 2014 murder of Albert Boyce.

The two were the first to appear in the dock of District “A” Criminal Court 2 after crossing the Bridgetown courtyard around 2:15 p.m. with five other men accused on various charges.

Shorey, of Parris Gap, Westbury Road, St Michael, and Phillips, of 10th Avenue New Orleans, both unemployed, were accompanied by their attorney Angella Mitchell-Gittens and were not required to plead to the capital offence.

In what was a veritable courtyard spectacle of shouting relatives, armed police special unit officers, and curious onlookers seeking every available vantage point, the seven were whisked into the court to face several charges, including wounding, firearm possession and conspiring to endanger life.

They were remanded to HMP Dodds until March 20. (CC)
