Inmates charged with prison assault

A group of high-profile inmates at Westgate Correctional Facility appeared before the courts yesterday morning charged with attacking a fellow prisoner.

David Cox, 37, Noel Barnett, 29, and Antoine Anderson, 39, all denied a charge of causing greivous bodily harm to Andre Hypolite in an incident on December 31, 2015.

Cox is currently serving a life sentence for the murder of Troy “Yankee” Rawlins, while Anderson is serving time for the 2007 murder of Aquil Richardson. Barnett is currently serving a 25-year sentence for the attempted murder of Jeremiah Dill.

Hypolite himself is serving a life sentence for the 2004 murder of Nicholas Dill.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo set a trial date of October 28 for the matter.
