Man on bail for murder fined for failing to charge monitor


Tribune Staff Reporter


A MAN on bail accused of murdering ten-year-old Lorencia Walkes in 2020 was sent to prison yesterday after being accused of again failing to charge his monitoring device.

Magistrate Shaka Serville charged Donald Cox, 27, with violation of bail conditions.

Cox was accused of the fatal shootings of 5th grader Lorencia Walkes and Perron Bain in Belville Circle in 2020.

While on release on these charges, Cox allegedly failed to charge his monitoring device between January 5 and 6.

Cox was fined $3,500 for a previous bail breach in May 2023.

Although he pleaded not guilty to his latest bail violation, his bail hearing was deferred to January 19. He was sent to prison in the meantime.
