Stabbing Suspect ‘Has Received Death Threats’


Tribune Staff Reporter


A MAN arraigned in a Magistrate’s Court in connection with a stabbing death at the Potter’s Cay Dock a week ago, yesterday claimed he had received “death threats” since the incident.

Dominique Lockhart, 29, who was charged with one count of murder for allegedly causing the death of Von Symonette on May 19, had his lawyer inform Magistrate Samuel McKinney of these alleged threats.

Magistrate McKinney subsequently said he had “taken note” of Lockhart’s complaints and informed him that he would address the commissioner of police on the matter.

On the day in question, police reported that shortly after 1.30pm, a man was involved in an argument with another man at the Potter’s Cay Dock that resulted in him being stabbed in his body with a knife. The victim was taken to hospital, where he later died of his injury.

Due to the nature of the charge, Lockhart was not required to enter a plea. Magistrate McKinney adjourned the matter until June 2 for a fixture hearing in Court Nine. Lockhart, meanwhile, was remanded to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services until that time.
