A MAN was remanded in custody after allegedly killing a missing person found inside a vehicle off Cowpen Road earlier this month.

Acting Chief Magistrate Roberto Reckley charged Ashton Sweeting, 32, with murder.

Sweeting is accused of shooting and killing Murray Walkes sometime between July 8 and 12 in New Providence.

The victim’s family reported the 34-year-old man missing on July 7. Police found Walkes’ body in a car off Cowpen Road on July 12, suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.

The accused’s case will be moved to the Supreme Court through a voluntary bill of indictment to be served on October 24.
