Judge allows suspect to be held for 14 days

A judge has agreed to let police detain shooting suspect Cervio Cox in custody for 14 days in connection with an alleged double attempted murder.

Supreme Court heard that Mr Cox, 28, of Clarendon Road, Hamilton Parish, was arrested on Friday on suspicion of the attempted murder of two people.

Puisne Judge Carlisle Greaves ordered yesterday that police could hold him until April 27 under the Firearms Act 1973.

Mr Cox’s lawyer Shade Subair said the matter involved Devon Hewey, 23, whom she is also representing.

Mr Hewey, of Palmetto Road, Pembroke, has been charged in Magistrates’ Court with the attempted murder on March 24 of Lavon Thomas and Darren Thomas.

Those charges are in relation to an incident in which windows were shot out at Seon Place in Hamilton but no one was injured.

Hewey appeared again at Magistrates’ Court yesterday morning, where he was remanded in custody until his next appearance there on May 1.
