TWO MEN HAVE BEEN charged in connection with the island’s second shooting death of 2017 as police report a major breakthrough into the killing of Michael Omar Edwards.

Police have charged Kamar Glenville Stoute, 28, of Block 3E, Bottom Close, Wildey, St Michael, and 26-year-old Livardo Rogelio Hinds of Durant’s, Lodge Road, Christ Church, in Edwards’ murder.

Stoute also faces additional charges of unlawful possession of cannabis and apparatus.

Edwards was shot multiple times after two men entered the Bartlett Tenantry, Sargeant Village, Christ Church, home of the 18-year-old around 2:30 p.m. on February 2.

He was rushed to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by ambulance for medical attention, but subsequently succumbed to his injuries.

Meanwhile, Hinds, who was the subject of a wanted man bulletin issued in September 2016, was captured by police last Friday. He also faces an additional charge of assisting offenders in connection with the May 2016 shooting death of a St Philip man.

The body of Michael Mapp of Blades Hill was discovered in a shallow grave at Fortesque. Akeil Grant of no fixed place of abode, and Akeem Mason of Blades Hill #2, St Philip, are currently on remand at Her Majesty’s Prison Dodds for the murder of Mapp.

Hinds and Stoute are expected to appear at the District ‘A’ Magistrate Court on Tuesday. (PR/SAT)
