Murder accused appear in court
Three men charged in connection with two separate murders appeared in Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
Shae-Unni Smith and Ricardo Tucker Jr, both 18, were charged with the murder of Duane Gibbons.
Mr Gibbons, 57, was found unconscious with a stab wound on Blue Hole Hill, Hamilton Parish, in the early hours of September 16 and was later pronounced dead by doctors at the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.
Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe adjourned the case until November 1 and remanded the two men, both from Sandys, in custody.
Davin Dill, 23, in a separate case, was charged with the murder of Joshua Rowse and unlawful possession of a bladed article in a public place.
The incident is alleged to have happened on June 14, 2020 outside the Rubis gas station on South Road, Warwick.
Mr Wolffe adjourned the case until November 1 and released Mr Dill, from Paget, on $25,000 bail.
He ordered Mr Dill to have no contact with prosecution witnesses and to stick to a 10pm to 6am curfew and wear an electronic tag.
The defendant was also ordered to report to Hamilton Police Station three times a week.
