A MAN accused of committing a murder more than three years ago will stand trial in late 2018, a Supreme Court judge told him yesterday.

Karron Collie appeared before Senior Justice Stephen Isaacs for a fixture hearing concerning the fatal shooting of Tavon Williams.

Collie had failed to appear before Senior Justice Isaacs on March 13, which resulted in a warrant of arrest being issued for him.

However, three days later, the warrant was cancelled once he appeared before the judge and apologised for his non-attendance. He explained that he had mistakenly appeared before wrong the judge concerning the matter.

He also said he had retained a new lawyer, Murrio Ducille, to represent him against the allegation.

His initial lawyer on record, Glendon Rolle, also was not present in court when the matter was called on March 13.

In yesterday’s fixture hearing, attorney Carissma Romer appeared on Mr Ducille’s behalf and a new date of November 26, 2018, was fixed for trial.

Collie, who is on bail, is accused of the murder of Williams, who was shot in the head on December 16, 2013, on Leeward Drive and died in hospital four months later.

Collie was formally arraigned in the Supreme Court in June, 2014, when he denied the allegation.

Erica Duncombe appeared for the Crown in yesterday’s fixture hearing.
