Both White and Stubbs were granted $9,500 bail with one or two sureties on condition, they sign in at South Beach Police Station every Monday, Wednesday and Friday before 6pm.

The remaining accused were sent back to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services.

The trial for all six accused is expected to continue on November 30.
