Man denies involvement in double murder

A man has denied being involved in the double murder of Ricco Furbert and Haile Outerbridge.

Mr Furbert and Mr Outerbridge were shot dead in the Belvin's store on Happy Valley Road in Devonshire on January 23, 2013.

This morning at Supreme Court, arraignments Ramano Jonathan Mills denied two charges of premeditated murder relating to their deaths.

The 29-year-old, of Sandys, further pleaded not guilty to two charges of using a firearm to commit the murders and taking a motorcycle without consent on the same day.

Mr Mills was remanded in custody and is expected to stand trial in the new year.

In a separate case Taj Browne denied being an accessory after the fact to the murder of Rickai Swan outside Southampton Rangers Sports Club on October 23, 2015.

Mr Browne is alleged to have helped Princeton Shantoine Burrows escape justice after the killing of Mr Swan.

The 28-year-old of Southampton was released on bail and could stand trial alongside Mr Burrows on September 6.

In a third unrelated case Malachi Brown pleaded not guilty to the murder of Lorenzo Stovell.

Mr Stovell was shot dead on September 23, 2012, outside a Sandys bar.

Mr Brown, 28, of Sandys also denied using a firearm to commit the murder and was remanded in custody.

He will appear at Supreme Court at the beginning of next month when a trial date should be set.
