A MAN accused of fatally shooting another man in his vehicle moments after he ordered take-out from a restaurant was arraigned in Magistrates Court yesterday.

Neville Woodside, of Fire Trail Road, was flanked by policemen as he was brought to the Magistrates Court complex to be charged before Magistrate Derence Rolle-Davis in connection with the country’s 21st homicide for the year.

He was not required to enter a plea.

It is claimed that on March 21, Woodside, intentionally and using unlawful harm, caused the death of 38-year-old Shervin Holbert of Derby Road.

On the day in question, arround 8pm, the Yellow Elder Gardens resident was sitting in his vehicle outside a Chinese Restaurant on Baillou Hill Road when he was approached by a man and shot multiple times. He died on the scene.

Woodside was told that he would appear before Chief Magistrate Roger Gomez on July 30 to learn whether his case will proceed through a Preliminary Inquiry or a Voluntary Bill of Indictment.

The police prosecutor indicated to the court the Crown’s intention to fast-track the case to Supreme Court through a VBI.

Regarding bail, the Magistrate told the accused: “The issue of bail does not arise in this court, therefore you are remanded into custody.”

Woodside was not represented by an attorney.
