A 26-year-old man was charged yesterday with the murder of Colford Ferguson almost seven years ago.

Khyri Smith-Williams, 26, appeared in Magistrates’ Court and was charged with the murder of Mr Ferguson and having a firearm for the purposes of the killing.

Mr Smith-Williams was not required to enter a plea as the case must be heard by the Supreme Court.

Mr Ferguson, a 29-year-old father of one, suffered three gunshot wounds in a daylight shooting on February 4, 2011.

He was doing construction work on a house at the junction of East Shore Road and Somerset Road at the time.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo remanded Smith-Williams in custody until February 1.
