THREE men expected to stand trial in Supreme Court yesterday in connection with the drive-by killing of a Fox Hill woman will return to court in January for a new trial date.

Lynden Lloyd Prosper, 25, of Johnson Road; D’Angelo Adderley, 22, of Shady Tree Lane; and Denard Davis, 23, of Cool Bush Lane appeared before Justice Bernard Tuner expecting to be tried on charges of murder and attempted murder.

However, the matter did not proceed because Prosper’s attorney, Ian Cargill, was at another trial.

The three men are each charged with murder and attempted murder, which they deny.

It is claimed that on November 3, 2010 they shot and killed 40-year-old Sheria Curry.

It is further claimed that they tried to kill Curry’s 10-year-old son Shanko Smith.

On the day in question, Step Street resident Ms Curry and her son were sitting with a group of people outside their home when the incident occurred.

Curry was shot in the head and her son in the leg. The 40-year-old died on the scene.
Prosper, Adderley and Davis return to court on January 17, 2013 to be given a new trial date.

Adderley is represented by Richard Bootle while Davis has retained Murrio Ducille as his attorney.
Prosecutors Abigail Farrington and Kevin Farrington appeared for the Crown.
