TWO MEN were remanded to prison yesterday after being accused of the fatal shooting of a man while the suspects were in a stolen car last week.
Dyanza Gibson, 20, and Deandre Morley, 21, faced Senior Magistrate Derence A Rolle Davis on a charge of murder. The pair faced additional charges of possession of an unlicenced firearm, receiving and two counts of armed robbery.
It is alleged that on January 26 while armed with a handgun the two robbed Kalie Taylor of her white 2013 Nissan Note. It is further said that the accused stole Taylor’s passport, Lenovo laptop, red iPhone XR and $450 in cash. On the same day, the accused were further charged with the armed mugging of Darien Dean when his blue Google Pixel phone was stolen.
On January 31, on Joe Farrington and Fox Hill Roads near Ivory Plaza while driving the same stolen vehicle, the two are alleged to have shot and killed 24-year-old Angelo Major.
The accused were arrested by police soon after the incident with both injured by police gunfire during their detention. The car was recovered and a firearm was confiscated. Police said they found a purple and black Taurus 9mm Luger model G2S.
Due to the gravity of the offences, the two were not required to enter a plea in court at that time. They were informed the the matter would be transferred to the Supreme Court by way of a Voluntary Bill of Indictment (VBI).
The accused were told that as the magistrate lacked the jurisdiction to grant them bail they had the right to apply for it through the higher court.
Until bail is granted, the pair will be remanded to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services.
The accused are expected to be served their VBIs on April 12.
