THREE men awaiting trial on a murder charge appeared in the Supreme Court for a status hearing yesterday.

Lynden Prosper, 26, D’Angelo Adderley, 26, and Denard Davis, 25, are scheduled to be tried before Justice Bernard Turner on Monday, August 29.

Prosper, Davis, and Adderley deny the murder and attempted murder charges they face concerning the November 3, 2010 killing and attempted murder of Sheria Curry and her 10-year-old son Shanko Smith.

On the day in question, Ms Curry, a Step Street resident, and her son were sitting with a group of people outside their home when the incident occurred.

Curry was shot in the head and her son in the leg. The 40-year-old died at the scene.

Yesterday’s status hearing before Justice Turner concerned Adderley’s legal representation.

It was unclear up to the hearing who was counsel on record for him.

However, attorney Stanley Rolle noted his appointment by way of a Crown brief and was asked by the judge if he would be ready to proceed.

Mr Rolle said he would be.

Davis and Prosper have retained Murrio Ducille and Ian Cargill to defend them.
