Two men deny murder charges

Two accused murderers pleaded not guilty at Supreme Court yesterday.

Norris Simpson stands accused of murdering 66-year-old social worker Ida James at her Paget home on or about September 1, 2011.

Represented by lawyer Elizabeth Christopher, the 53-year-old defendant from Pembroke pleaded not guilty.

Chief Justice Richard Ground fixed his trial for August 13 and remanded him into custody.

In another case at the monthly arraignment session, 16-year-old Rashaun Codrington denied murdering 18-year-old Malcolm Outerbridge.

Mr Outerbridge was killed on the Railway Trail near his Warwick home on October 28, 2011.

The Chief Justice fixed a trial for Mr Codrington, of Warwick, for June 19 and remanded him into custody until then.

In another case, two men accused of importing cocaine denied the charges. Randolph Simons, 46, of Pembroke and Everett Bean, 29, of Warwick, were bailed until their trial on July 16.

The last new case before the Supreme Court was that of Darrion Simons, who was 19 yesterday. Mr Simons is accused of possessing a Smith and Wesson pistol and five .38 calibre bullets on November 5 last year.

He was remanded into custody until February 10 when a date for his trial will be fixed.
