Man On Bail Accused Of Murder And Robbery


Tribune Staff Reporter


A MAN previously on bail on the condition of his movements being electronically monitored is now back in Her Majesty’s Prison after being arraigned yesterday on charges of murder and armed robbery.

Henley Claridge, 26, of Quarry Mission Road, appeared before Chief Magistrate Joyanne Ferguson-Pratt accused of two counts of armed robbery and a single charge of murder, alleged to have been committed on March 4.

Claridge was not required to enter a plea to the charge due to the nature of the offences.

It is claimed that he robbed a woman and Darius Adderley of two Samsung cellphones valued together at $600. He is further accused of intentionally killing Adderley by means of unlawful harm.

On the evening in question, shortly before 9pm, Adderley was sitting in his 2003 Dodge Town and Country Van on Roseland Street with a female friend, when a man armed with a handgun robbed them.

As he was leaving, the suspect shot at the vehicle, hitting Darius in the back. The woman was unharmed during the robbery.

Darius was taken to hospital by ambulance, but died of his injuries shortly after his arrival.

The matter is set to be fast-tracked to the Supreme Court for trial through service of a Voluntary Bill of Indictment.

Claridge was remanded to prison.
