Accused remanded


Share post:

Cheriss Omar Ince made an eight-minute court appearance yesterday accused of stealing the car that missing woman Marcelle Smith was driving the day she vanished.

And, in his objection to bail for the 36-year-old carpenter, of Nursery No. 2, Four Roads, St Philip, lead prosecutor Station Sergeant Neville Watson said Ince was looking at a murder charge. The accused was remanded until Tuesday when he is expected in the District “C” Court.

Ince’s arrest had consumed Barbados after a body, believed to be that of the missing 75-year-old Smith of Farm Road, was taken from a ravine last weekend.

He quietly slipped into the Criminal Court No.1 under the glare of the media attention as a few onlookers converged on the District “A” Magistrates Court compound around 2 p.m.
