Men plead not guilty to murder charge

Two men denied the murder of George Lynch when they appeared in Supreme Court this morning.

The 40-year-old was shot dead outside a house on Midland Heights Crescent, Hamilton Parish on May 5, 2010.

Wolda Salamma Gardner, 34, and Rickai Tessfer Dickinson, 29, both from St George's pleaded not guilty to charges of premeditated murder and using a firearm to commit an indictable offence.

The matter was just one of several to appear before the Supreme Court as part of an arraignments session.

Also appearing was 25-year-old British contract worker Natalie Simpson, who pleaded guilty to a single count of unlawful wounding in connection to an incident at a Hamilton New Year's Eve party.

Puisne Judge Carlisle Greaves ordered a social inquiry report on Simpson, extending her bail until next month when she is set to return to court for the matter to be mentioned.

Damon Morris, 24, of Paget, and Chris Ray, 43, of Warwick, meanwhile, appeared before the court charged with burglary in connection to a November 19, 2013 incident in Warwick that ended in a stand-off with Police.

Morris pleaded guilty but Mr Ray denied the offence. He is set to return to court later this month for trial.
