Alleged kidnap case delayed

A jury selected on August 2 to hear the trial of three men accused of kidnap, assault and robbery, is still waiting to hear opening speeches.

The case of cousins Kenith and Macray Bulford plus Ashley Wellman has been delayed by lengthy legal arguments, which continued in the absence of the jury throughout this week.

The trio deny charges they held Dwayne Reid-Anderson against his will on January 2 2010.

They are also accused of conspiring to use a firearm to commit the kidnap, wounding Mr Reid-Anderson, 26, with intent to do him grievous bodily harm and robbing him of $4,000.

Macray Bulford, 38, is represented by lawyer Elizabeth Christopher. Kenith Bulford, 36, is represented by Saul Froomkin QC. Ashley Wellman is represented by Charles Richardson.

The Crown is represented by prosecutor Susan Mulligan.

The men, who are all from Sandys, deny the charges against them.
