Two Teens Accused Of Stabbing Man To Death


Tribune Staff Reporter


TWO teenagers, including a 15-year-old juvenile, were arraigned in Magistrate’s Court yesterday on a murder charge.

It is alleged that Shawn McPhee, 18, and a 15-year-old boy, both of Nassau Village, intentionally caused the death of Cyril Cartwright on February 13.

Police received reports that Cartwright, following an argument with another man, was stabbed while in the area of Sumner Street.

When officers arrived, they found the lifeless body of a man with multiple stab wounds in his body. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The accused pair will have their case fast tracked to the Supreme Court on July 1.

McPhee was remanded to prison and the juvenile to the Simpson Penn Centre for Boys.

The latter was warned that if he misbehaved, he could be placed in the juvenile wing at the Department of Correctional Services.

In another matter, a third suspect was arraigned in Magistrate’s Court yesterday accused of plotting the death of a man who was found lifeless in a car.

Ramon Sweeting, 37, of Coral Harbour appeared before Magistrate Andrew Forbes facing a charge of conspiracy to commit murder under Section 89 (2) of the Penal Code, Chapter 84.

It is alleged that he, being concerned with others between April 30 and May 1, conspired to murder Oneil Marshall.

Shortly after midnight on Sunday, May 1, police were on mobile patrol when they saw smoke coming from a vehicle in the parking lot of the old City Meat Market building located off Market Street north, according to initial police reports.

Police examined the vehicle and found the body of an adult male with gunshot wounds. The victim, later identified as Marshall, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Jamaric Green, 30, and Caryn Moss, 25, were previously arraigned on the same charge concerning the incident.

As he did to Green and Moss at an earlier arraignment, Magistrate Forbes told Sweeting he was not required to enter a plea to the allegation until the matter is transferred to the Supreme Court by way of a voluntary bill of indictment.

The presentation of the indictment is scheduled for June 21.

Sweeting was denied bail in the interim, but was informed of his right to apply to the Supreme Court for pre-trial release.

He was remanded to the Department of Correctional Services in the interim.

Sweeting is represented by attorney Jomo Campbell.
