A 52-year-old man police were questioning over the weekend in connection with the country’s 28th homicide for the year was arraigned in Magistrate’s Court yesterday.
Keith Paul Wood, of West End Avenue, was brought before Chief Magistrate Roger Gomez to face a charge of murder.
It is claimed that on Saturday, the accused intentionally caused the death of Stephen Williams.
The incident occurred on West Avenue around 3am, after Williams got into an altercation with another man and was stabbed.
Wood was not required to enter a plea to the charge and was told by the chief magistrate that his case, as noted by police prosecutor Sgt Audrey Deveaux, would be fast-tracked to the Supreme Court through a Voluntary Bill of Indictment.
Wood was remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison until completion of his trial as he was ineligible for bail.
However, he was told that he had the right to apply for bail in the Supreme Court.
The accused had no legal representation during yesterday’s proceedings.
