A MAN awaiting trial on a murder charge said he would submit an alibi to the Office of the Attorney General within 21 days.

Robert Dorsett, 22, appeared in Magistrates Court yesterday for a voluntary bill of indictment (VBI) presentation that would fast track his case to the Supreme Court for trial concerning the October 17 homicide of Alvardo Darilus.

Shortly after 9pm that day, Darilus was at Sunshine Park when he got into an altercation with two men, resulting in him being shot. Darilus was taken to hospital where he died of his injuries.

Chief Magistrate Joyanne Ferguson-Pratt informed Dorsett of the contents of the VBI and his right to enter an alibi in court or in 21 days to the Office of the Attorney General.

Dorsett, of Belair Estates, chose the latter and is now scheduled to appear in the Supreme Court on January 22, 2016, before Senior Justice Bernard Turner to receive a date for trial.

Dorsett will be allowed to enter a plea to the murder charges in his Supreme Court appearance next month. He is represented by attorney Troy Kellman.

He remains on remand at the Department of Correctional Services until his next court appearance.
