Man charged with manslaughter in connection with boat death

A trial date was set yesterday for a man accused of causing a boat crash that killed a 24-year-old man.

Mikado Burchall, 35, will appear in the Supreme Court on April 18 next year.

Mr Burchall pleaded not guilty in 2019 to the manslaughter of Adrian Hassell and piloting a marine vessel while impaired by alcohol.

The incident is alleged to have happened on January 1, 2019.

The case was one of several called at a Supreme Court arraignments session.

Shae-Unni Smith and Ricardo Tucker Jr, both 18, are charged with the murder of Duane Gibbons.

Mr Gibbons, 57, was alleged to have been stabbed to death in Blue Hole Hill, Hamilton Parish, on September 16.

Mr Smith and Mr Tucker have not entered a plea to the charges.

Puisne Judge Charles-Etta Simmons adjourned the case until December 1 and remanded the two, from Sandys, in custody.

Davin Dill, 23, also appeared in court charged with the murder of Joshua Rowse and possession of a bladed article in public.

The incident is alleged to have happened on June 14 last year outside the Rubis gas station on South Road, Warwick.

Mr Dill, from Paget, has not entered a plea to the charges.

Ms Simmons adjourned the case until December 1 and extended Mr Dill’s $25,000 bail.

Zywonde Lema, 20, was remanded in custody after he appeared in the Supreme Court.

Mr Lema is charged with the unlawful wounding of a teenager with intent to do grievous bodily harm and possession of a bladed article.

The incident is alleged to have happened near the Hamilton bus terminal on February 24.

Mr Lema also faces two more charges of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and possession of a bladed article, as well as aggravated burglary and robbery.

Ms Simmons adjourned the case until December 1.

Nancy Vieira, a 47-year-old lawyer from Pembroke, appeared charged with two counts of theft and of obtaining money by deception.

Ms Vieira has denied obtaining a $50,000 money transfer from Kirsten Badenduck through deception.

She also pleaded not guilty to two counts of theft by unauthorised ATM withdrawals from Ms Badenduck's bank account that totalled $36,216.

Ms Vieira will appear later in the month.
