33-year-old man charged with premeditated murder
A St George’s man was yesterday charged with the premeditated murder of 20-year-old Malcolm Augustus.
Wolda Gardner, 33, of Secretary Lane, was also charged with using a firearm to commit an indictable offence, specifically murder.
Both offences were said to have occurred on or around December 25.
Mr Gardner was not required to enter a plea as the charges must be heard by the Supreme Court.
He appeared in court wearing a blue jumpsuit, and remained silent throughout the proceedings.
He was represented in court by lawyer Larry Mussenden; prosecutor Cindy Clarke represented the Crown.
Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner remanded Mr Gardner into custody. He is expected to return to court later this month for the matter to be mentioned.
Mr Augustus was fatally shot just after midnight on Christmas Day on the border of St George’s Golf Course.
The incident was the fifth and final shooting murder of 2012.
