Three men this morning denied charges of attempted murder during an appearance in Supreme Court.

Shannon Dill, 24, Shelton Baker, 24, and Stacey Robinson, 23, each pleaded not guilty to charges of attempting to murder Lionel Thomas Jr in an incident on April 30. The men further denied wounding Mr Thomas with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and using a firearm to commit the offences.

Mr Dill alone denied charges of discharging a firearm and possessing a firearm magazine without a licence.

A fourth defendant, Roshuntae Davis, 21, meanwhile, denied a charge of being an accessory after the fact by helping Mr Dill to escape custody.

Chief Justice Ian Kawaley set a trial date of April 27, extending bail for all four defendants.

The matter was one of several to appear during the monthly arraignments session this morning.

Also appearing was Germiko Michael Williams, 29, who denied four charges of being an accessory after the fact in connection to the non-fatal shooting of four men on November 11.

Gladstone Wade, Denzell Crockwell, Lorenzo Dill and Kirt Brown Jr suffered injuries in the incident, which occurred outside the Somerset Cricket Club.

Mr Williams was given a trial date in March and his bail was extended.

Tiffany Dawn Eatherly, meanwhile, was charged with perverting the course of justice, giving false testimony, giving evidence with intent to mislead the Court and wilfully making false declarations and statements. All four charges relate to testimony delivered in the Supreme Court on April 14 and 15 last year.

Her matter is set to return to the Supreme Court on April 20 for trial.

Luke Albert Hill, 47, denied conspiring to import heroin to the Island between an unknown date and February 16, 2011. He also pleaded not guilty to allegations that he acquired, used or possessed more than $120,000 in cash representing the proceeds of criminal conduct.

Derek Andre Weeks Jr, 28, and Javon Deonville Weeks, 30, both denied charges of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and possessing a bladed article — a long, silver-coloured sword — in a public place on March 8.
